(p.225) 9 Standard Colonial Quechua
Iberian Imperialism and Language Evolution in Latin America

Alan Durston

University of Chicago Press

This chapter examines how Spanish rule in Andes affected the Quechua language family, especially via the rise and spread of new, colonial varieties. In particular, it examines the history of Standard Colonial Quechua, a written standard developed by the Peruvian church as a pastoral medium. Although widely used, it was restricted to specific contexts and cannot be considered a lingua franca in the usual sense.

Keywords:   Quechua, Andes, Spanish colonialism, standardization, language shift
