Rasgos coloquiales en el lenguaje periodístico español

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Although spontaneous conversation is the prototypical situation of use of colloquial Spanish, we can often identify colloquial “attitudes” in situations, which apparently require the presence of a standard, learned or even technical variety. It is logical to expect that the press, the most “popular” of all media, would try to reproduce a language accessible to all readers. In this article we have taken into consideration the most frequent colloquial elements (syntactical exemplification, lexicon and phraseology, daily metaphors, etc.) of a corpus of articles from El País.
