"Dialectal variation in Spanish wh-interrogatives"

(inbjuden av Pekka Posio).

In this talk, I will combine interactional and quantitative methodology in order to determine the parameters that govern the variation in Caribbean and Peninsular Spanish wh-interrogatives. I will demonstrate that preverbal subjects (¿Qué tú quieres?) and the use of clefted wh-interrogatives in Caribbean Spanish serve to express specific discourse-pragmatic functions that can be considered innovations.
