Labile verbs in peninsular Spanish: a vernacular phenomenon barely researched
[Resumen extraído de la fuente original]
The western variety of Peninsular Spanish is characterised by having a series of labile verbs, as the consequence of the displacement of a transitive verb by an intransitive one. Specifically, the verbs caer (‘to fall’), quedar (‘to stay’) and entrar (‘to enter’) can induce a direct object although they are intransitive. In this paper, I will study its current extension and the possible semantic factors that favour the transitivisation of these verbs.
