Quechua, Huaylas Ancash Bible - New Testament

The Quechua of Huailas is a Quechuan language of Peru spoken in the Callejón de Huaylas and in the western slope of the Cordillera Negra. The main peculiarities of this variety are phonetic. In Quechua Ancash-Huailas a phenomenon of monophthongation of syllables with semiconsonants in coda is present: "aw" is often pronounced as [o:] elongated, likewise "ay" as [e:]. For example, 'awmi' is pronounced [o: mi], chawpi (center) [t͡ʃo: pi] and aywan (walks) as [e: wan]. In grammatical terms, Huailas does not have the suffix -ski .
