When 3 variants are given for a word, the first (in bold) is Tehuetzál, the second is its sister-language Cuitsañil, and the third is their parent language. When only 2 variants are given, the word is the same in both Tehuetzál and Cuitsañil. When only 1 variant is given, the word is the same in all languages.

The parent language, when listed separately, is written in the IPA.

In Tehuetzál, x is pronounced like "sh". Doubled vowels are "long vowels," meaning they are literally held for a longer time than a single vowel.

In Cuitsañil, u followed by another vowel is pronounced like "w". Grave-accent vowels are pronounced as follows:

à
/ə/ (like English "uh")
è
/ɛ/ (like English "bet")
ì
/ɪ/ (like English "bit")
ò
/ə/ (like English "uh") — same as à
ù
/ʊ/ (like English "book")

For both languages, all other spellings are pronounced as in Spanish.
