Classical Nahuatl Wikibook

Welcome to the Classical Nahuatl Wikibook. Here you can learn the language that was spoken by the Aztecs in the valley of Mexico at the time of the Spanish Conquest and during the subsequent centuries, which has survived through a multitude of written sources written by Nahuas and Spaniards.

Nochi tlacameh huan cihuameh quipiah manoh cuali tlacaticeh, nochi zan ce totlatechpohuiltiliz huan titlatepanitalohqueh, yeca monequi cuali ma timohuicacah, ma timoicnelicah, ma timotlazohtlacah huan ma timotlepanitacah.

Translation: All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood. (Article 1 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights)
