This famous work is a practical manual for the use of merchants, scribes, employers, doctors, lawyers, and just about any Spaniard having dealings with speakers of Nahuati-the native language, also called Aztec, of the Indian majority in Central Mexico. It offers section on "what to say to a servant when sending him to the market to buy food", and "useful phrases for talking with miners and field workers."
