You can learn more about the Aztec language here. The Nahuatl language is an agglutinant language, which means that words and phrases are put together by combining prefixes, suffixes, and root words, in order to form an idea. For example, in Tetelcingo Nahuatl (a modern dialect), there is an 18-syllable word that means "you honourable people might have come along banging your noses just to make them bleed, but in fact you did not" . That's right, you can just keep stringing those ideas together!

Actually, many forms of Nahuatl are still spoken today. It's likely that there were various dialects during the time of the Aztecs, just as there are today. Some dialects are so different that you can not understand one another!
