The bipartite nature of the passive of transitive roots is clear from the fact that the -aj suffix is elsewhere a generic intransitivizer (discussed below—see Lacadena 2003), whereas when it is affixed to transitive roots, it is clearly passive. The presence of an infixed -h- (not specified orthographically) can be reconstructed since the only languages which use an -a(j) suffix on transitive roots are Colonial Ch’olti’ and Modern Ch’orti’ (both descendents of Classical Ch’olti’), and in both these languages, the passive with a(j) is always accompanied by an infixed -h- (see Robertson et al.

The last section includes some of that Early Classic productivity, but also includes a period of sharp decline in the production of monumental inscriptions, known as the ‘Hiatus’. 1 INTRODUCTION When dealing with the earliest Maya texts as sources of linguistic data, the researcher encounters two major obstacles: the overwhelming scarcity of texts and the often-stubborn opacity of those texts that survive.
