Lecciones de Aymara (Lessons in Aymara).
Instituto de Idiomas Padres de Maryknoll, Cochabamba (Bolivia).
This two-volume audiolingual course in Aymara for Spanish speakers is based on the variety of Aymara spoken in La Paz. The Aymara appears in phonetic transcription; all other material (introduction, directions, notes, and explanations) appear in Spanish. Lesson units in Volume I begin with a dialogue introducing the basic sentence patterns for the unit, followed by exercises and drills to practice the new grammatical structures. Lesson units in Volume II consist of sections on basic sentences, basic text, grammatical structures with exercises and drills, generalizations, and reading selections. A special introductory section presents a brief description of the phonology of Aymara and contrasts the vowels and consonants with Spanish. An Aymara-Spanish glossary concludes each volume. Tapes to accompany the lesson materials are forthcoming. (AMM)
