Neología y variación regional en la terminología económica del español

Publication: Chapter in book/Conference proceedingContribution to conference proceedings


The paper illustrates the enormous regional variation in Spanish economic terminology, which arises from the fact that English models are often adapted independently in different Spanish-speaking countries. The fate of 19th century adaptations of the concept 'purchasing power' suggests that this terminological variability is not going to disappear soon.
