Poqomam (also spelled Pocomam or Poqomchi') is a Mayan language spoken in Guatemala and parts of El Salvador. It is a member of the Quichean-Mamean language group, which also includes the Quiche and Cakchiquel languages. Poqomam is spoken by around 20,000 people, primarily in the departments of Chiquimula and Jutiapa in Guatemala, as well as in parts of El Salvador.

Like other Mayan languages, Poqomam has a complex phonetic system that includes a range of consonants and vowels that can be pronounced in different ways depending on their position in a word and the sounds that come before or after them. The phonetic rules of Poqomam can be quite challenging for speakers of other languages to learn, as they are quite different from the phonetic systems of Indo-European languages such as English, Spanish, and French.

If you are interested in learning more about the phonetics of Poqomam or other Mayan languages, there are many resources available online and in print that can help you learn about the sounds and rules of these languages. Some good places to start might include language textbooks, online courses, and language-learning apps.
