Mesoamerican languages are the languages indigenous to the Mesoamerican cultural area, which covers southern Mexico, all of Guatemala and Belize and parts of Honduras and El Salvador and Nicaragua. The area is characterized by extensive linguistic diversity containing several hundred different languages and seven major language families. Mesoamerica is also an area of high linguistic diffusion in that long-term interaction among speakers of different languages through several millennia has resulted in the convergence of certain linguistic traits across disparate language families. The Mesoamerican sprachbund is commonly referred to as the Mesoamerican Linguistic Area.

  • As línguas mesoamericanas são as línguas indígenas da área cultural mesoamericana, que abrange o sul do México, a totalidade de Guatemala e Belize e partes das Honduras e El Salvador. Esta área caracteriza-se pela sua grande diversidade linguística, contendo várias centenas de línguas diferentes e 7 famílias linguísticas principais. A Mesoamérica é também uma área de grande difusão limguística, pois a interacção de longo prazo entre falantes de línguas diferentes através de vários milénios resultou na convergência de certos traços linguísticos entre várias famílias linguísticas. O sprachbund mesoamericano é geralmente designado por área linguística mesoamericana.
  • Индейские языки Месоамерики (индейские языки Средней Америки, месоамериканские / мезоамериканские языки) — языки аборигенного населения Месоамерики до прихода европейцев. В отличие от большинства местных языков Северной и Южной Америки многие языки Месоамерики в значительной степени сохранились до наших дней.
