SNU Department of Linguistics and the Department of Hispanic Language and Literature are currently working on creating Hangeul orthography for the Aymara language which the Aymara, an indigenous people of the Andes, use. The Aymaran language has no script of its own, and borrows the Roman alphabet. Most Aymaran vowels can be written in Hangeul, but Aymaran consonants are more diverse than Hangeul so the research team is considering reviving dead Hangeul consonants. However, since Aymarans already use the Roman alphabet, the research team doubts they will use Hangeul orthography as an alternative choice, and is focusing more on studying the Aymaran language itself.
