Could be better  Aug 25, 2008
I found the booklet difficult to use. It may be a good start, but clearer instruction needs to be presented up front. For example, it needs to be plainly stated that pronunciation is as in Spanish. Also, instead of dribbling out the suffixes throughout the book, a simple suffix conjugation table that hit the main suffix uses would be much more helpful. I can use the book, but I'll be looking for better one.
Good introduction  Feb 25, 2008
I admit, I have never been anywhere where Quechua is spoken. I purchased this booklet because I am interested in exotic languages and Lonely Planet provides a good introduction to a tongue which is very different from English, or for that matter, any Indo-European language. This guide does a good job covering the extremely complex Quchua grammer, as well as, the decidedly foreign pronunciation. As far as I can tell, the Quechua phrases given would probably be usefull for the traveller arriving in areas where Quechua is the lingua franca.
Quechua Phrasebook  Feb 15, 2008
This book is very helpful in trying to learn Quechua. I am using it for a research paper for school, and it provides a lot of additional cultural and social information about the language as well, instead of just plain grammar, which makes the language seem dry when nothing interesting is added to it. Very good book!
One of the only Quechua books out there........  Nov 11, 2007
This book is an absolute must-have if going to the highlands of Peru where Spanish is not the primary language, but Quechua is. Quechua was the language of the Incas and is still spoken by approximately 10 million people in the mountains of South America, many of them in Peru. Quechua has only three vowels: a, i, and u. Additionally, the languages' large number of suffixes changes the actual meaning and implication of words, hence the need for something other than a Spanish phrasebook.

And because there are very few written materials in terms of newspapers, books, or magazines in the Quechua language, Quechua remains largely an oral language, making this book all the more valuable a resource.

If you will be trekking or going off the beaten path, this phrase book is a must have to gain a better understanding of the local people, their customs, and ways. While a Spanish phrase book will help to some extent, it's usability will diminish the farther off the beaten path one goes, as Quechua is the lingua franca of the Andes.

If there is any downside to this book, I guess it would be the fact that Lonely Planet did not make this one color coded by subject (Social, Food etc.) as they do with their Latin American Spanish phrase book. But that is a very minor detail.

Again, this is probably not necessary if you will be simply going to the cities of Lima or Cuzco, but if you plan on going off the beaten path in the highlands of Peru, this little book will come in very handy. It should be noted that because of the esoteric nature of the book (it can take several weeks to fill an order and virtually no bookstores carry this), it may take some time to arrive, so if you have a trip planned and want to take this book with you, it would be advised to order this well in advance of your leaving.

Easy to use, covers a lot of material, inexpensive  Apr 21, 2002
This easy-to-use reference shows how the words are built, with things like verb endings, infixes, suffixes. It's small, but it has a lot of useful material; for the price it's OUTSTANDING.

The SECOND edition is completely revised, by a different author (excellent teaching credentials), vastly more material -- both more gramatical info, and a wealth of additional vocabulary, plus there is also a Quechua-English section as well as English-Quechua, making it an even more valuable reference.

Some things are perhaps because Lonely Planet has standardized them -- I doubt you'll be asking anyone for a date in Quechua -- but it's still material to practice breaking apart the pieces.

I love the illustrations!
