Chapter 4. Derived verbs and future-conditional stem regularization in written Spanish in synchrony and diachrony. Innovative Approaches to Research in Hispanic Linguistics: Regional, diachronic, and learner profile variation, Fernández Cuenca, Sara, Tiffany Judy and Lauren Miller (eds.), pp. 82–1052023.
Spanish verbs derived via prefixation prescriptively retain the morphological complexity of their root verbs.

This study explored the influence of social and syntactic-pragmatic factors on a speaker’s choice between hesitation markers este and eh in oral discourse. Data collected from San Juan (PR), Mexico City, Montevideo, and Medellín were analyzed as a large corpus and on an individual country basis.… read more | Article
