About

My research focuses on the variable morphosyntax of Cuban, Dominican, and Puerto Rican Spanish. I have published and presented multiple papers on morphosyntactic alternations in these varieties. Through the study of such alternations, I explore the question as to which cognitive, social, and individual factors shape linguistic variation in general. My current research focuses on the variable use of subject personal pronouns in Cuban, Dominican, and Puerto Rican Spanish. Particularly, continuing the approach developed in my book Cognitive, social, and individual constraints on linguistic variation: A case study of the pluralization of presentational haber in Caribbean Spanish, I explore how applying the analytical tools provided by Cognitive Linguistics to this showcase variable of Hispanic Sociolinguistics allows us to formulate a psychologically adequate theory of the constraints that govern morphosyntactic variation.
