Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

Title: Elementos de la Gramática de la Lengua Keshua
Written By: José David Berrios
URL: www.lincom-shop.eu
Series Title: LINCOM Americana

El idioma keshua, extendido, en otro tiempo, desde Quito hasta Copiapó i
Tucumán, en el vasto Imperio de los Incas, soberanos de la región que los
españoles denominaran Perú, divididos hoi en varias naciones de la América
Meridional, fué conocido i apreciado por algunos sabios sacerdotes de la
Península que lo estudiaron i aun publicaron algunos libros á él. No habiendo
existido ningún documento escrito en este idioma, por cuanto los Incas i sus
súbditos del poderoso Imperio de Tahuantinsuyu ignoraban el arte de la
escritura, conservando sus anales sólo por medio de los K'ipus (especie de
rapacejos de hilo de lana de diversos colores i atados en nudos diversos), se
hace forzoso representar los varios i peculiares sonidos de la lengua keshua
por medio de los caracteres de los idiomas europeos, creando nuevos para
los sonidos especiales del idioma.

Contenido: Signos o letras Keshuas (Sanampakuna), de las partes de la
oración, del nombre (suti), del pronombre (sutij rantin), del verbo (rimai), de la
construcción, de las oraciones, prosodia, ortografía (Re-edition; originally
published 1919 in La Paz; written in Spanish).
