ENGLISH-QUECHUA DICTIONARY--CUZCO, AYACUCHO, COCHABAMBA.
PARKER, GARY; AND OTHERS
WRITTEN TO SUPPLEMENT THE AUTHORS' SPOKEN QUECHUA MATERIALS, THIS TRIDIALECTAL DICTIONARY PROVIDES THE SPEAKER OF ENGLISH WHO HAS HAD SOME TRAINING IN QUECHUA GRAMMAR WITH A MEANS OF ACCESS TO ADDITIONAL VOCABULARY IN THE CUZCO, AYACUCHO, AND COCHABAMBA DIALECTS. ALL THE QUECHUA WORDS AND PHRASES INCLUDED ARE IN ACTUAL USE AND WERE GATHERED FROM FIELD EXPERIENCE OR WORK WITH NATIVE INFORMANTS. SINCE THE APPROXIMATELY 3,000 ENTRIES ARE LISTED ALPHABETICALLY BY THE ENGLISH EQUIVALENT FOR THE QUECHUA WORDS BEING GIVEN, THE USER DOES NOT HAVE ACCESS TO QUECHUA WORDS HE MAY WANT TO IDENTIFY. IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE ENGLISH KEY WORD A SPANISH EQUIVALENT IS GIVEN, PRIMARILY FOR THE INFORMATION OF SPANISH-SPEAKING USERS. THE PART OF SPEECH IS THEN GIVEN WITH EQUIVALENTS OF THE TERM IN THE THREE DIALECTS. TRANSCRIPTION IS BASED ON THE PHONEMIC SYSTEM OF EACH DIALECT AS USED IN THE SPOKEN QUECHUA COURSE MATERIALS. (JD)
