Aymara

Aymara is spoken by the Aymara people of the Andes and is, along with Quechua and Spanish, an official language of Bolivia. It is also spoken around the Lake Titicaca region of southern Peru and some communities in northern Chile and in Northwest Argentina.

The written language was originally a series of symbols and pictures until under Spanish influence the Latin script was adopted but spelling was not standardised until the Peruvian Government introduced the Aymara Official Alphabet or Unified Alphabet in 1985.
