Abstract

The current study investigates the address systems of Argentines and Salvadorans living in the United States in order to determine whether these voseante speakers accommodate to forms used by other Hispanic groups with whom they come into contact by shifting from voseo to tuteo. Previous research has shown a decrease from high levels of voseo among Salvadorans in El Salvador to significantly lower levels among their U.S.-based counterparts. In the current study, the same methodology has been used to study Argentine immigrants. It was hypothesized that for reasons such as national pride and socioeconomic status, the Argentines would maintain voseante forms of address at a much higher rate, something borne out by the data.
