Evaluation of Two Hypotheses about the Alternation between "aqui" and "aca" in a Corpus of Present-Day Spanish.
Sedano, Mercedes
Language Variation and Change, v6 n2 p223-37 1994
Evaluates two hypotheses that argue that the Spanish demonstrative verbs "aqui" and "aca" can alternate in some contexts. The results of a quantitative study of Venezuelan Spanish show that the delimination hypothesis, which states that the place denoted by "aqui" is less limited and defined than the place denoted by "aca," is valid.
