Dear P. Kerim Friedman

Thank you for the article on Mexican languages.
It says that Otomi is spoken by 300,000 Mexicans and "There are 10 million
indigenous Mexicans in a population of 103 million."
Could you precise when : now 2004 or at the last census (2000 ?)
And how to know the amount of speakers of main Amerindian languages at the
last census ?


Best regards

Roland Breton
