A Hippocrene Trilingual Reference
Quechua is an indigenous language family spoken by nearly 10 million people, primarily in the Andes region of South America. It is best known as the language of the ancient Inca empire. Alongside Spanish, Quechua is an official language in Bolivia, Ecuador and Peru. This full-length dictionary was researched and compiled to address the paucity of written Quechua resources and includes 3 sections: English-Quechua, Spanish-Quechua, and Quechua-Spanish-English.
Spanish is a logical conduit language between Quechua and English and many Quechua words are found in Peruvian Spanish. Ideal for anthropologists, students and travelers, this dictionary features over 11,000 entries as well as an introduction to the Quechua language and basics of grammar.
