THE STRUCTURE OF CUZCO QUECHUA.
SOLA, DONALD F.; AND OTHERS
THIS DETAILED, LINGUISTIC ANALYSIS DOES NOT CONTRAST ENGLISH AND QUECHUA PHONOLOGY AND GRAMMAR BUT RATHER ATTEMPTS TO DESCRIBE THE DISTRIBUTIONAL AND SEMANTIC CATEGORIES PARTICULAR TO CUZCO QUECHUA IN A THOROUGH AND SCIENTIFIC MANNER. IT CAN BE USED IN THE FIELD TO IDENTIFY UNFAMILIAR UTTERANCES OR TO HELP UNDERSTAND HOW NATIVE SPEAKERS COMMUNICATE IN THIS COMPLEX LANGUAGE. A SERIOUS STUDENT WHO WISHES TO LEARN OTHER DIALECTS OF QUECHUA COULD USE THIS DESCRIPTIVE GRAMMAR AS A BASIS FOR COMPARISON. IT IS WRITTEN ON A TECHNICAL LEVEL OF LINGUISTIC DESCRIPTION, BUT CAN BE USED BY THOSE WITH A BACKGROUND IN GENERAL LINGUISTICS OR SOME TRAINING IN QUECHUA DIALECTS. (JD)
