Mayan languages

The Mayan languages form a language family spoken in Mesoamerica, both in the south of Mexico and northern Central America. Mayan languages are spoken by at least 6 million Maya people, primarily in Guatemala, Mexico, Belize, El Salvador and Honduras.

Modern Mayan languages are descended from the Proto-Mayan language (a hypothetical common ancestor), thought to have been spoken at least 5,000 years ago.
