As the empire of Peru was made up of many barbarous tribes, its native inhabitants spoke many languages or dialects, which were only understood in their own particular districts. The language of the ruling people or tribe to which the royal family belonged, called the _Quichua_, was solely used at court, and we have already seen that the sons of all the chiefs or curacas of the empire were ordered to be educated at Cuzco, that they might be all able to converse with the sovereign. In this language the sounds of _b, d, f, g_, and _r_, are said to have been wanting; and yet that of the _r_ occurs in the names of several of their kings. Garcilasso says that this letter had a guttural sound, perhaps resembling the burr, or _parler gras_ of the French: And it is alleged that this language of a comparatively barbarous people was nearly as copious and as artificial as the Greek.
