Documenting Children's Cuzco Quechua in Bolivia and Peru

The main goal of this study is to document children's comprehension and production of Quechua (quz) in rural highland Bolivia and Peru, where a continuum of permeation from Spanish can be observed. The secondary goal is to document variation within Cuzco-Collao Quechua, giving special attention to the Chuquisaca dialect spoken in South Bolivia. Despite the fact that there are hundreds of thousands of speakers of Cuzco-Collao Quechua, only a handful of studies of Andean children's grammar focus on their L1 grammar, and virtually all of these focus on Peruvian children, leaving a serious gap in documentation of indigenous children's language.
