THE STRUCTURE OF COCHABAMBA QUECHUA.
LASTRA, YOLANDA; SOLA, DONALD F.
THE PURPOSE OF THIS STUDY IS TO DESCRIBE THE MAIN STRUCTURAL ASPECTS OF COCHABAMBA QUECHUA. IT IS INTENDED TO SERVE AS A REFERENCE BOOK FOR LINGUISTS AND THOSE LEARNING THIS DIALECT. THE INTRODUCTION DISCUSSES THE STUDY'S PURPOSE, INFORMANTS, METHODS, TERMINOLOGY, AND NOTATION. THE AUTHORS THEN EXAMINE IN SEPARATE CHAPTERS PHONOLOGY, MORPHOPHONEMICS, CONSTRUCTIONS, PHRASE STRUCTURE, CLAUSES, AND SENTENCE FORMS. MANY EXAMPLES ARE GIVEN TO ILLUSTRATE THE COMPLEX GRAMMATICAL SYSTEM OF THIS DIALECT. ALTHOUGH THE TERMINOLOGY USED IS TECHNICAL, NONLINGUISTS WITH SOME EXPERIENCE IN QUECHUA CAN PROFIT FROM ITS COMPLETE AND SCIENTIFIC TREATMENT OF FORMS AND CATEGORIES OF MEANING. (JD)
