FRIAS Research Project

River Plate Spanish and its standarization

The project is focused on  the Rioplatense linguistic modality, the language contact among several ethnic groups -especially, Italian immigration, the impact of the complex historic situation of immigration on the popular literature -especially in theatre, and the effects of these works on “prestigious” forms of literature.  The polemics about the “Argentinean language” will be considered from the perspective of different intellectuals of the Nineteenth and Twentieth centuries -especially Borges and Arlt. Particular consideration will be given to the relationship between norm and variation in European Spanish and American Spanish, especially in regard of the different varieties of cleft and pseudocleft constructions, but also in other several lexical and grammatical segments.
