Introduction
Quiché, along with Kakchiquel, Kekchi, Mam, and others, is a dialect of a group of Mayan languages that are found throughout western Central America and into Mexico. Most of the indigenous populations of this region speak a Mayan dialect. In general, the population speaking both a dialect and Spanish is male.

In the over 500 years following the Spanish Conquest, Quiché has evolved to include much that is common to Spanish in terms of grammar and vocabulary. Where words describing Spanish concepts do not exist in the Quiché dialect, Spanish words are substituted. When the Spaniards arrived, they found it to be a spoken language only, with no writing system in place. Therefore, they romanized the sounds they heard to the equivalent consonants and vowels of the Spanish lexicon. If a writing system existed prior to the Conquest, it was likely similar in form to the writings found in tombs and on palaces that were already in ruin by the time the Spaniards arrived. Currently, among the Mayan populations, most commerce is transacted in Spanish, while social and private conversations tend to be in one or more dialects.

The dialects most used in the Quetzaltenango mission are (in order of most usage) Quiché and Mam.

The First Presidency has decided to produce materials in the language in which the majority of the Church is progressing in any given area. Since the Church in Guatemala is progressing more rapidly in Spanish than in any native dialect, you will notice on your mission that there is a lack of printed material in the principal dialects. There is little, if any, dialect instruction given at the MTC, so most missionaries rely on bilingual members or companions to interpret. Others choose to learn Mayan dialects by purchasing or borrowing dictionaries and grammar tutorials.

In the spirit of giving missionaries a head start into this intriguing dialect, I have transcribed my own notes that I gathered while serving in San Carlos Sija which was part of the Momostenango zone in 1994. Given that San Carlos Sija is mainly a Spanish-speaking community, I didn’t get many opportunities to practice using Quiché in everyday conversations. So, in that regard, I won’t be much help if you have questions. However, if there are missionaries who still speak Quiché, please contact me and I will list your names as resources on this page. Also, please feel free to make corrections and additions to this page by sending me an e-mail.

Pronunciation and Grammar
With Quiché, one has to become accustomed to the glottal stop, which is the sudden cutting off of a letter’s sound by closing the vocal chords in the middle of sounding it out. The glottal stop is indicated by the apostrophe ('‘) after the letter to be cut off. The double “t” in “bottle” as pronounced with a Scottish accent is a close approximation of the glottal stop sound.

The vowels are pronounced in Quiché in much the same way they’re pronounced in Spanish. That is:
a = ah (as in father)
e = ay (as in wait)
i = ee (as in seed)
o = o (as in bone)
u = oo (as in hoot)

Exceptions to vowel sounds not found in Spanish are aa (written as ä in this tutorial), ee, and ii. The doubling of a vowel normally indicates that it is followed by a glottal stop. When uu begins a word or follows another vowel, it is pronounced like the English “woo”.

The consonants are also pronounced similarly to those in English or Spanish.
b = like English b, but pronounced together with a glottal stop.
c = formed with the tongue at the front of the throat (top of the soft palate) as in the English “cat”; pronounced without the puff of air that follows c in English “cat”.
ch = like English ch.
h = pronounced deeper in the throat than English h, like Spanish j or German ch.
k = formed with the tongue at the back of the throat (bottom of the soft palate).
l = pronounced with the tongue moved forward from the position of English l so as to touch the teeth, as in the ll of Welsh “Lloyd”.
p = pronounced without the puff of air that follows p in English “pit”.
q, qu = formed with the tongue at the middle of the throat (middle of the soft palate).
r = pronounced with a flap of the tongue if between two vowels, like Spanish r; otherwise trilled like Spanish rr.
t = pronounced without the puff of air that follows t in English “ten”.
tt = like t, but pronounced together with a glottal stop.
tz = like ts in English “mats”.
x = like English sh.
z = like English s.

Stress is always on the last syllable of the word.

General English-to-Quiché Rules

  • English doesn’t distinguish between singular and plural in 2nd person. Quiché does.
  • English distinguishes between “he”, “she”, and “it”. Quiché does not.
  • English only uses one common form of speech in the second person singular and plural. Quiché uses two.

Simple rule: Quiché follows most of the same grammar rules as Spanish.

Quiché Possessive Pronouns

singular

plural

familiar

a = your

i = your (< 25 people)

There are two kinds of ergative pronouns: the kind that appear before consonants and the kind that appear before vowels.
