Cognitive, Social, and Individual Constraints on Linguistic Variation : A Case Study of Presentational 'Haber' Pluralization in Caribbean Spanish
The present volume tries to answer the question: What constrains morphosyntactic variation? By analyzing the variable agreement of presentational haber ('there to be') in Caribbean Spanish with advanced statistical tools and theoretical constructs of Cognitive Sociolinguistics, psycholinguistics, and variationist sociolinguistics, it proposes an innovative theoretical model of the constraints that govern morphosyntactic variation.
