Yauyos Quechua Evidentials and the Interpretation of Mode (Article)
Title: Yauyos Quechua Evidentials and the Interpretation of Mode
Author: Aviva Shimelman
Abstract: This paper examines the evidential system of the five southern dialects of Yauyos, a previously undocumented, extremely endangered Quechuan language of Peru. The paper looks at the Yauyos' unusual system of evidential modification and its effects on the interpretation mode, particularly in conjunction with the language's conjectural evidential, -tr'I.
