C. Hermann Berendt's comparative vocabulary of 13 entries in Spanish, and the equivalent in Huave, as collected by E. A. Fuertes, along with the equivalents, when available, in Aymara, as collected by David Forbes; and in Quechua (here: Quichua). An additional column for Araucana (Mapuche language) is blank. (Berendt's intention to compare the Huave to all three languages, Aymara, Quichua, and Araucana, is stated in a note on the title page.) The 13 Huave entries were collected by E. A. Fuertes during the American ship canal expedition to the Isthmus of Tehuantepec in 1870-1871; they were taken by Berendt from a larger manuscript by Fuertes dated April 1872 (prepared for the Smithsonian Institution), which Berendt transcribed under the title: Mexican Indian Languages: Vocabularies of the Zapoteco from Suchitan, Zoque from Chimalapa and Mixe from Guichicori (see Ms. Coll. 700, Item 107; Huave vocabulary, p. 53). In the latter transcription, Berendt notes his own version of the orthography, according to his analytical alphabet, next to Fuertes's rendering of the words. In the present manuscript the Huave is spelled according to the analytical alphabet. The Aymara vocabulary (12 entries) is taken from Forbes's article On the Aymara Indians of Bolivia and Peru (Journal of the Ethnological Society of London vol. 2, 1870, p.193-305; Aymara vocabulary, p. 287-297). Only two entries are given in Quechua, and no source is named.
