Historia de una excepción perfecta: Norma y usos del pretérito perfecto compuesto en español actual

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

In this study, we carry out a detailed analysis of current grammatical variation phenomenon related to the Spanish pretérito perfecto compuesto (present perfect) which we consider as a major grammaticalization process, as we will be able to confirm. After having described the unstable sociolinguistic landscape of the present perfect in the Spanish-speaking world from a diachronic and a synchronic perspective, we aim to show its exceptional grammatical features and aspectual representations, analysing the possible deviations trends from the norm that speakers do when using this form.
