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 malliy ["ma.LIj] (in QUZ ) (See example 1).
(1) =malli -y
=to.taste -Inf
’to try, to taste food or a drink (and comment on its quality and
flavor)’
In English it means to try, to taste food or a drink (and
comment on its quality and flavor), it is spelled:
m-a-l-l-i-y.

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

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


(2) Mikhunata malliy,
=mikhu+na -ta =malli -y
=to.eat+Obl:food -Acc =to.taste -2.Sg.Subj.Imp
kachiyuqchus icha manachus
=kachi -yuq -chu -s =icha =mana -chu -s
=salt -Poss -Intr -IndE =or =not -Intr -IndE
’Taste the food, I don’t remember if I seasoned it with salt.’
This sentence translated into English means ’Taste the food, I don’t
remember if I seasoned it with salt’.

Now let’s listen the sentence twice:


First time:
Mikhunata malliy, kachiyuqchus icha manachus.
Second time:
Mikhunata malliy, kachiyuqchus icha manachus.

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