Quechua is spoken in Bolivia, Argentina, Colombia, Peru & Ecuador in different forms. It was the lingua franca of the Inca Empire that flourished in what is today’s Peru from 1438 to 1533 AD and they spread Quechua to areas that today are known as Ecuador, Bolivia, and Chile.
During the reign of the Inca Empire a written system for Quechua was not developed and the literature was passed down orally generation after generation. After the Spanish conquest, Quechua was written using the Roman alphabet which was used until the 20th century. Since 1975, it is written using a new orthography that was introduced by the Peruvian government.
Quechua comprises of 45 different dialects with limited degree of mutual intelligibility between them. These dialects are broadly divided into two groups: Central and Peripheral. These two branches are then subdivided themselves into additional branches. Quechua has a relatively simple sound system and makes use of only three vowels: a, i, u and 14 consonant phonemes. It is an agglutinate language. Quechua also has several Spanish loan words.
