<p>Abstract:</p><p>The hypothesis that the members of the ProtoâUto-Aztecan speech community were maize farmers is premised in part on the assumption that a ProtoâUto-Aztecan etymon for 'maize' can be reconstructed; this implies that cognates with maize-related meanings should be attested in languages in both the Northern and Southern branches of the language family. A ProtoâSouthern Uto-Aztecan etymon for 'maize' is reconstructible, but the only potential cognate for these terms documented in a Northern Uto-Aztecan language is a single Gabrielino word. However, this word cannot be identified definitively as cognate with the Southern Uto-Aztecan terms for 'maize'; consequently, the existence of a ProtoâUto-Aztecan word for 'maize' cannot be postulated.</p>
