Abstract: Tzotzil in one of Mayan Languages spoken in Mexico. This Language basically predicate-initial, but varius phrases occur before predicate when they are focused or topicalized. Aissen (2006) describes the framework of Chomsky 1986 and presents a phrase-stuctural analysis of topic and focus for three distinct entities are distinguished : the focus and two types of topic, term here ‘internal’ and ‘external’. Each is argued to occupy a district structural position.
