Sammanfattning

This paper proposes a case for language contact between two genetically unrelated and extinct Andean language groups: Mochica, which was spoken on the northern coast of Peru, and Hibito and Cholón, which were spoken in the Peruvian northern eastern slopes. The analysis offers evidence of both lexical items and morphological structures that support the hypothesis of contact between these languages. After examining possible contexts of interaction, this paper concludes that the correspondences may have been a consequence of language contact associated with intercultural exchange and trade. This study argues for the value of the possible external relations between Mochica and other languages.
