Abstract:The findings of the study also suggest that dequeismo and queismo are variants of the same sociolinguistic variable in Southern Cone Spanish because both variants are regulated by the same linguistic factors, i.e., types of verbs, syntactic structures, grammatical person, and tense in the main clause. Secondly, (de) queismo seems to constitute a change in progress because it is a stable, long-term variation that has persisted over many centuries. Thirdly, the variation between Southern Cone dialects in the use of (de) queismo reflects different semantic nuances of de ; hence, different grammaticalization stages.
