Although Aymara is the native language of more than one million people, there has been up to now very little material available in Aymara. The Aymara Language Materials Project, begun formally in 1969, has concentrated on providing simultaneously a culturally accurate set of materials for learning the Aymara language and an introduction to the Aymara culture for use among students anywhere in the world who are interested in learning the language and culture of the Aymara. The materials developed consist of: 1) three volumes of printed materials - a student textbook, teacher's manual, and grammatical sketch, or reference grammar; 2) 70 hours of tapes to accompany the printed materials; and 3) a computer print-out concordance glossary. All these materials have been tested in courses given at the University of Florida and have been corrected and modified accordingly. However, since research in the language continues, there will be continual updates, particularly of Volume III. The tapes are available from the Department of Linguistics at the University of Pittsburgh at a cost of approximately $60.00. The glossary is available from the Center for Latin American Studies at the University of Florida at Gainesville for approximately $15.00. (Author/KM)
