  1. ummm, I always say Mexican people speak Mexican. I mean, c’mon, they aren’t from Spain, right? Spanish and Mexican Spanish are different dialects, similar, but people insist upon calling it Spanish. You don’t hear Cajun people say they speak French, do you? No, they speak Cajun.

  2. Before Mexico was conquered, (1519) There were several: Otomi. Nahuatl, Mixteco, Zapoteco, Mayan, Purepecha, as well as multiple other derivations and mixes from such roots.
    When the spaniards came, they brought the Castilian to America
    Through the time, native dilalects were less spoken, because of the Spanish domination (which ended in 1810).
    Presently, in Mexico (as well as in almost all Latin America), Castilian is spoken; even though, there are still hundreds of indian dialects that are still spoken in some regions, like Chihuahua, Oaxaca, Michoacan, Hidalgo, State of Mexico, etc.
    In Mexico, Castilian took many indian words, however, it kept most of its original Spanish roots.

  3. Hey, Halema, what’s the name of the language that you speak, rocket scientist?

    Mostly Spanish but there are also some indigenous people in Yucatan that speak Maya, and there is a wide diversity of other indigenous languages, some of which are related to nahuatl, what the Aztecs spoke.
