Hello all,

I am looking for someone who can translate (morpheme-by-morpheme gloss,
plus idiomatic translation, and verification of phonemic transcription)
of a song in Quechua (don't know which dialect). If there is anyone out
there who can help with this, please get in touch with me. The song is
not terribly long. It's called 'Tinku'. I'm using it in an intro
linguistics class, and would like to be able to say what the words mean!!

Thanks in advance.
