Two different surges in production can be seen at Tikal—a mild jump during K’atun 17 of Cycle 8, and more drastic one during the third and fourth K’atun’s of Cycle 9. The rulers responsible for the first spike in text production were Chak Tok Ich’aak I and his successor (but not son) Yax Nuun Ayiin I (Martin and Grube 2000:32).

This act is intransitive, involving only the ruler in question, and the suffix -laj is attached to the root to indicate this. The positional intransitive suffix -laj was first recognized by Barbara Macleod (1987). This example of the -laj positional intransitive suffix is the earliest attested occurrence of any Positional morphology. Another early attestation of chum, in an intransitive usage shows unique suffixation. Lacadena (2002) noted a Positional intransitive suffixed with the syllable [ja], rather than the expected [la-ja] on the ‘Hombre de Tikal’ text, a lengthy Early Classic text tattooed on the back of a husky, and now headless figurine.

E sitz' chojka aktana ub'ajner umen e ijch'ok. ’ K'ojpa ub'aker e chamen winik ta k'opot umen ajk'ampa'rob'. -aj passive found in the script. -aj passive on a transitive root is on Bejucal Stela 2 with the root tz’ap ‘to plant’. 0 or July 24, AD 393. 12 (AD 383). However, Martin and Grube (2000) list the dedication date for this text as AD 416, making it much later than the Bejucal Stela 2 example. 2 THE -V1Y MEDIOPASSIVE The earliest attestation of the -V1y suffix, noted by Houston et al. (2000), is found on Balakbal Stela 5.
