FERNANDEZ-DOIG, Fabiola. A sociolinguistic approach to the direct object clitic doubling in Lambayeque Spanish, Peru. Bol. Acad. peru. leng. [online]. 2022, n.72, pp.259-291.  Epub Dec 16, 2022. ISSN 0567-6002.

This paper analyzes the accusative clictic doubling, understood as the co-occurrence of the direct object clitic and the direct object noun phrase in postverbal position, in the Lambayeque Spanish variety. In the study, four cities in this department were considered: Chiclayo, Eten, Ferreñafe and Mochumí, which were chosen according to the level of contact with Quechua, the predominance of economic activities and the high centralism in education and services. A total of 72 interviews were obtained. The objective of the research is to show the features of the Lambayeque variety in the use of the double accusative. For this purpose, research was carried out on the statistical significance of the following factors: animacy, definiteness, agreement (gender and number), age, gender and origin. The results show that the accusative clictic doubling in this dialectal variety is sensitive to animacy, definiteness and agreement between the determiner phrase (DF) and the corresponding clitic. It was found possible to establish a hierarchy of significance among the factors studied.

Keywords : accusative clictic doubling; grammatical agreement; animacy; definiteness; language contact.
