Starting to learn Nahuatl

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
