  • The language, Classical Nahuatl, is now dead, but you can still hear descendant forms of Nahuatl which have as good or better a claim to be called mexicano as modern English has to be called by the same name as the language of Beowulf if you travel around central México, especially in small communities up in the hills, away from the big cities.
