Quechumaran is a language-family proposal that unites Quechua and Aymara. Quechuan languages, especially those of the south, share a large amount of vocabulary with Aymara. Kaufman[1] finds the proposal reasonably convincing, but Willem Adelaar, a Quechua specialist, believes the similarities to be due to borrowing during long-term contact.[2] Lyle Campbell suspects that the proposal is valid, but does not consider it to have been conclusively proven.[3]
