The Lengua de los Llanos represents a hitherto unknown Yokuts tribal dialect which was used to produce a catechism for the first Yokuts converts missionized at Misión Santa Cruz. The authors are in the process of studying the dialect used in the catechism, which, despite the fact that it is clearly a subdialect of Northern Valley Yokuts, itself a dialect group forming part what could be called the Nuclear Valley Yokuts language, containing such well-described dialects as Yawlamni1 and Chukchansi, still contains sentences with words of uncertain meaning.
