One of the processes of word formation is composition. Th is morphological mechanism has been little studied in Andean languages such as Aymara, especially in the case of reduplicated compounds, in which two identical lexical pieces are joined to create a new word. Th is article aims to show a description of the ways in which reduplicated compound words are formed in this language. Methodologically, data from the main Aymara dictionaries and from the speakers are used. With this work, we conclude that Aymara is a language that uses reduplicated compounds to form compound words basically of nominal order.
