North Peruvian Andean Spanish as a particular language subvariety
In this chapter I will present the most salient dialectal facts found through the fieldwork, with the purpose of showing that northern Andean Spanish of Culle substrate constitutes a particular language subvariety within the group called castellano andino ‘Andean Spanish’. This will allow me to assess a more general question that was posed initially – namely, if the presented case adequately dialogues with the historical zonification model of American Spanish proposed by De Granda (1994a, 1994b). I start from the conception of Andean Spanish as a language variety that brings together a continuum of systems that approximate standard Spanish. These systems are characterized by widespread use, not only in rural and urban communities in the highlands of Peru, but also on the coast. They exhibit a series of grammatical influences from the “major” Andean languages, Quechua and Aymara (Cerrón-Palomino 2003 : 74–75), and regional subvarieties also show influences from other Andean languages, like Culle in this case.
