Amazonian Quichua Language and Life Résumé

Amazonian Quichua Language and Life: Introduction to Grammar, Ecology, and Discourse from Pastaza and Upper Napo, Ecuador Janis B. Nuckolls

In Introduction to Amazonian Quichua Language and Life: Grammar, Culture, and Discourse Patterns from Pastaza and Upper Napo Seakers, Janis B. Nuckolls and Tod D. Swanson discuss two varieties of Quichua, an indigenous Ecuadorian language. Drawing on their linguistic and anthropological knowledge, extensive fieldwork, and personal relationships with generations of speakers from Pastaza and Napo communities, the authors open a door into worlds of intimate meaning that knowledge of Quichua makes accessible. Nuckolls and Swanson link grammatical lessons with examples of naturally occurring discourse, traditional narratives, conversations, songs, and personal experiences to teach readers about the languages' structures and discourse patterns and speakers' sensory depictions, ecological aesthetics, and emotional perspectives.
