A Grammar of the Yucatecan Mayan Language
by David & Alejandra Bolles


124.  In Mayan, as in English, there are four basic sentence types:

1) declarative
2) interrogative
3) imperative
4) exclamatory

This chapter will be looking principally at the word order of declarative sentences, since they make up the bulk of daily conversation. Since the word order for negated sentences is in some cases different from their positive counterparts, the negation of these sentences will be looked at where applicable.
