This programme was first broadcast in 2016.

This is not an accurate word-for-word transcript of the program.

Hinantin presents “Word of the Day”, a series of daily 1-minute podcasts (radio
features), that support your Quechua language vocabulary studies.

ANNOUNCER:

This is your Quechua minute for today, so you could be in the Know!
on the Go!

The Word of the Day is p’uku ["p’U.kU] (in QUZ ) (See example 1).
(1) =p’uku
=plate
’deep bowl (concave-shaped) made out of baked clay, used to eat
food, its size is variable’
In English it means deep bowl (concave-shaped) made out
of baked clay, used to eat food, its size is variable, it is
spelled:
p-’-u-k-u.

1
Now let’s repeat it 3 times: p’uku, p’uku, p’uku.

Now listen to it in context (See example 2):


(2) Pay tumpaykuwan p’ukukuna
=pay =tumpa -yku -wa -n =p’uku -kuna
=he =to.accuse -Aff -1.Obj -3.Sg.Subj =plate -Pl
p’akikusqanmanta
=p’aki -ku -sqa -n -manta
=to.break -Rflx -Perf -3.Sg.Poss -Abl
’She blamed me for breaking the plates.’
This sentence translated into English means ’She blamed me for
breaking the plates’.

Now let’s listen the sentence twice:


First time:
Pay tumpaykuwan p’ukukuna p’akikusqanmanta.
Second time:
Pay tumpaykuwan p’ukukuna p’akikusqanmanta.

I hope you enjoyed it! Look for a new word here every day, and make
