NENA, Carlos de (may'-nah), Mexican linguist, born in Valladolid, Yucatan, about 1560; died in the convent of Mococha, 16 January, 1633. He studied in the Seminary of Merida and entered the order of San Francisco, becoming afterward guardian of the convent of Mococha, which post he occupied till his death. Mena contributed greatly to the knowledge of the Indian languages, he wrote "Sermons and Dissertations" in the Maya language, and Cogoyudo, in his "Historia de Yucatan," says that Mena was among the great Indian linguists of the province. Ephraim G. Squier, in his "Monography of Authors" (London, 1861), also gives him a prominent place.
