During the years following the Spanish conquest of Yucatan, the Maya adopted the Latin-based alphabet developed by Franciscan missionaries for writing their language. There is ample evidence that the Indians quickly grasped the principles of alphabetic writing, producing a variety of religious and legal documents that are rich sources of information on the colonial language. There are also occasional examples of apparent spelling errors, which contain clues to the nature of the Precolumbian Maya hieroglyphic writing system. This paper examines some "aberrant" abbreviations in the Books of Chilam Balam of Chumayel and Chan Kan and demonstrates that they represent the extension of Pre conquest principles of syllabic writing to the letters of the Spanish alphabet.
