Has anyone here ever heard of a crackpot theory that the Andean
language Aymara has mysterious syntactical structures that somehow
violate normal ideas of the way languages work and suggest that it
might be a conlang (a conlang probably constructed by UFOs no less!)?

A friend of mine heard this and asked me about it, as if I would
know.  I had no clue.  I checked and the linguist list; on the
latter, somebody had asked this question but no answers were posted
(must be a conspiracy!).

Any Andean experts or even hobbyists out there?
