Quechua is the language of the Incas. Today, more than 10 million people speak Quechua, primarily in Peru, but also in Bolivia, Equator and even in Argentina. This dictionary is mostly intended for French speakers who wish to learn Quechua. It also aims at providing specific information about its linguistic use for researchers of the Andes. The corpus includes more than 3 900 entries and sub-entries, and more than 1 000 examples. It is preceded by a grammatical introduction and followed by a French-Quechua lexicon.
