    • Abstract:
      This investigation, based on the dual analysis (linguistic/literary) of the Mayan version of the poem "Yaan a bin xook"/ "Irás a la escuela"/"You Will Go to School" written by Briceida Cuevas Cob (2005), focuses on how cultural belief, practice, and iconic representation are communicated through language. By working closely with Mayan language and culture expert Rolando Ek Naal, a native speaker of Maya, key terms and concepts throughout the poem have been examined to identify cultural symbolism that is embedded linguistically. Besides the expertise of Mr. Ek Naal, this study has also been guided by the commentary of the poet herself, taken from a personal interview granted in 2012. Although, Cuevas Cob is a contemporary poet and in this poem speaks about issues facing young Mayan women today, many aspects of the language and imagery that she uses (as this study demonstrates) can be traced to ancient belief and expression.

    • Abstract:
      Esta investigación está basada en el análisis dual (lingüístico/literario) de la versión maya del poema "Yaan a bix xoo" / "Irás a la escuela" / "You will go to School" escrito por Briceida Cuevas Cob (2005), enfocado en cómo la creencia, práctica y representación icónica cultural son comunicadas a través del lenguaje. Trabajando estrechamente con el experto en lengua y cultura maya, Rolando Ek Naal, un hablante nativo de maya, se han examinado los términos y conceptos clave en el poema para identifcar el simbolismo cultural lingüísticamente inserto. Además de la destreza del señor Ek Naal, este estudio también ha sido guiado por el comentario de la propia poeta, tomado de una entrevista personal concedida en 2012. Aunque, Cuevas Cob es una poeta contemporánea y en este poema habla de problemas con los que se enfrentan hoy en día las jóvenes mujeres mayas, muchos de los aspectos de la lengua y las imágenes que utiliza (como lo demuestra este estudio) puede tener su origen en antiguas creencias y expresiones.
