"'Combinamos el quechua'" bridges the gap between sociolinguistics and anthropology by establishing, through an ethnographic approach, the social and linguistic factors that influence how urban youth use Spanish and Quechua. Quechua is the most spoken indigenous language in the American continent, but despite its predominance, it has been subordinated in most contexts. The work also examines why this is, and how it impacts youths' senses of personal identity.
