Second person singular forms in Cali Colombian Spanish
Enhancing the envelope of variation
Inspired by previous research, this investigation includes both social and linguistic variables in analyses of production of second person singular forms in Cali, Colombian Spanish. Preliminary analyses had found similarities between the forms; to clarify variation, there are three separate analyses (tú/vos, tú/usted, vos/usted). Twenty-one participants completed an oral-discourse completion task. Results show tú and vos pattern similarly by age and relationship but differ by gender, social network, and all linguistic variables. Tú and usted differ by age, relationship, verbal frequency, and subject pronoun expression. Vos and usted differ by all social factors and show similar rates of subject pronoun expression. The analysis complements previous research on this phenomenon and enhances the envelope of variation by more descriptively reporting variation.
