Central Aymara

"Central Aymara" is the name of one of the two major dialects of the Aymara language of South America. Central Aymara is mainly spoken in Bolivia, but also has speakers in southern Peru and northern Chile. Many linguists consider Southern Aymara and Central Aymara to be different enough from one another to qualify as distinct languages, while others consider them dialects of a single Aymara language.
