  1. Remember that a "dialect" is a variant of a language that is still intelligible to speakers of the same language from other places. You’re wondering how many indigenous languages are spoken in Mexico.

    The 16th edition of Ethnologue lists 291 living languages as being spoken in Mexico, along with 7 extinct ones. Of these, Mexican Sign Language, Spanish, Plautdietsch (a language spoken by a portion of the German diaspora), and Afro-Seminole Creole (a language that mixes African, European and Native American elements) are the only ones that aren’t seen as belonging to Mexico’s indigenous population.
