I analyze ejective stops in Apurímac Quechua (a variety of Quechua spoken in Southern Peru) in light of the classification system proposed in Lindau (1984) and Kingston (1985), in which ejectives are considered strong or weak based on their acoustic properties. I discuss quantitative characteristics of Apurímac Quechua ejectives as determined in an acoustic study and evaluate the suitability of Lindau (1984) and Kingston (1985)’s typology for categorizing ejectives in light of the Apurímac Quechua data, considered holistically along with data on ejectives from other languages.
