The location of Maratino in Tamaulipas state
Maratino is a barely attested extinct language that was spoken in north-east Mexico, near Martín, Tamaulipas. Swanton, who called it 'Tamaulipeco', classified it as Uto-Aztecan based on a few obvious cognates, such as Maratino chiguat 'woman' ~ Nahuatl cihuātl 'woman' and peyot 'peyote' ~ Nahuatl peyotl, but other scholars have not considered this to be enough to classify the language.
The little material that is recorded is published in
- John Swanton, 1940, Linguistic material from the tribes of southern Texas and northern Mexico. (122–124)
