On the origin of interdialectal forms
When two languages or varieties come into contact different processes are activated, in which several linguistic, social and cultural aspects are involved. The study of these processes is interesting because it leads to a better understanding of the mechanisms underlying language change and also of the society and culture where change occurs. In certain situations of dialect contact, new forms emerge, which did not previously exist in any of the established dialects, but have been created from elements (features, forms, structures) already existing: interdialectalisms. In this article, various theories about the origin of these forms are analysed with respect to two phonetic interdialectal forms in Canarian Spanish, both created with features from both the regional dialect and standard Spanish.
Keywords: dialect contact, language change, hybridism, interdialectalism, Canarian Spanish
