Welcome to our Quechua vocabulary page! Quechua is an Andean language of South America, considered by some to be a distant relative of Aymara. We have included twenty basic Quechua words here, enough to provide a simple comparison with related American Indian languages. All the nouns are singular and all the verbs are 3rd person singular ("he or she sings") because many indigenous languages don't have a separate infinitive ("to sing") the way English and French do.
