In this paper we obtain a local limit theorem for elements of a free group G under the abelianization map [·] :G ® G/[G,G]. This is obtained via an analysis involving subshifts of finite type, where we obtain a result of independent interest. The case of fundamental groups of compact surfaces of genus ³ 2 is also discussed.
