DescriptionAn attempt to identify the size of the speech community in Tataltepec de Valdés. Previous speaker counts were problematic as census data both fails to distinguish among Chatino languages and are reported by municipio, which in the case of Tataltepec includes both the town of Tataltepec de Valdés (where most every Chatino speaker speaks Cháʔknyá) and the equally-populous Santa Cruz Tepenixtlahuaca (where a variety of a different Chatino language is widely spoken).
