  1. Anchata gustawarqan kay podcastninchikmi. Ideed, there’s something I’d like to point out: The ronunciation of letter -q in coda position is never /q/ but an alophone, in Souther Quechua this alophone is /χ/ , otherwise it sounds really weird. You all keep doing more podcast 🙂

  2. Did I hear Dora right?

    “qanchis pachak watayuq kani”

    She is 170 years old?!! That can’t be right..

  3. Thank you for all of your comments! As students of the language, we appreciate all help and guidance!
