Aspects of Spanish Deictic Expressions in Barcelona: A Quantitative Examination.
Vann, Robert E.
Language Variation and Change, v10 n3 p263-88 1998
This sociolinguistic investigation analyzes an innovative usage of Spanish motion verbs, demonstratives, and locatives in Barcelona, Spain that involves crosslinguistic pragmatic transfer. Speakers in the two social networks examined (n=58) use these Spanish deictics following pragmatic rules that generally correspond to the rules for their Catalan counterparts. (Author/VWL)
