"Southern Aymara" is the name of one of the two major dialects of the Aymara language of South America.
It is spoken primarily in Peru. 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.
