"Tengo-Vengo," an Update.
Lenfest, Donald Edgar
Hispania, v76 n3 p634-44 Sep 1993
The evolution of the Latin "teneo venio" to the Spanish "tengo vengo" is analyzed, including Menendez Pidal's influential treatment of the problem and some recent explanations. The hypothesis that loss of flexional yod was the fundamental cause of analogical structuring is reviewed, and a new hypothesis is proposed. (Contains 30 references.) (Author/LB)
