SOLA, DONALD F.
THIS GUIDEBOOK DESCRIBES THE NATURE AND USE OF THE MATERIALS PREPARED FOR TEACHING THREE OF THE MAIN DIALECTS OF QUECHUA TO SPEAKERS OF ENGLISH INTERESTED IN WORKING OR DOING RESEARCH IN THE ANDEAN REGION. DESCRIPTIVE AND PEDAGOGICAL MATERIALS HAVE BEEN PREPARED FOR EACH OF THREE IMPORTANT DIALECTS--CUZCO AND AYACUCHO IN PERU, AND COCHABAMBA IN BOLIVIA. EACH SPOKEN QUECHUA COURSE CONSISTS OF TWO MIMEOGRAPHED VOLUMES OF STUDY UNITS (APPROXIMATELY 120 CLASS HOURS PER VOLUME), A READER, AND A COMPLETE, STRUCTURAL LINGUISTIC ANALYSIS OF THE DIALECT WHICH SERVES THE STUDENT AS A REFERENCE BOOK. A TRIDIALECTAL DICTIONARY HAS ALSO BEEN PREPARED TO ACCOMPANY THE COURSES GIVING EQUIVALENTS IN SPANISH AND THE THREE DIALECTS FOR 3,000 ENGLISH EXPRESSIONS. ALL OF THE EXERCISES AND THE SECOND-LEVEL READING MATERIALS HAVE BEEN TAPE-RECORDED BY NATIVE SPEAKERS. THE MATERIAL PRESENTED IS IN THE CONTEXT OF THE DAILY LIFE AND CUSTOMS OF THE ANDEAN INDIANS. THE GUIDEBOOK ALSO SERVES AS A TEACHERS' HANDBOOK OF SPECIFIC TEACHING PROCEDURES TO BE USED WITH THESE LINGUISTICALLY BASED MATERIALS. (JD)
