There is a lot ado about the relationship between
Aymara and Quechua the last ten years. Many scholars
don't believe in it anymore, because the cognates are too 'young'.
Probably there was a influence very early in history.

interesting sites BTW!

There seems to be some lost relation between Aymara and Quechua. Perhaps you could re-create one? A while back I was considering making a euro-quechua but fortunately that hasn't happened yet. -- As they say in Tepa: hike waipettu.
