To my knowledge there is no correct grammar, or at least grammatical
convention, as there is no governing body for the language, there are
aproximately 5 Nawatl conventions, all of them made by people for who
Nawatl is a second language, and none of them Mexican.
I had to create my own orthographic convention, since classic Nahua
is a dead language and modern Nawatl has been influenced by suspect
interest such as the CIA's Instituto Linguistico de Verano.
If you wish a copy of my Nawatl Orthographic convention let me know,
Totenyo, Totau'ka, Mexikah
