Abstract

This study uses natural, everyday social interaction within Salvadoran families living in Southern California to examine the use of the 2nd-person singular pronouns tu ´ and vos (and their corresponding morphologies) in this contact variety of Spanish. An in-depth, qualitative analysis reveals that the employment and significance of these forms of address do not conform entirely to Salvadoran norms, nor to those of the surrounding Mexican-based Spanish koine ´. Accommodation to the pronominal reper- toire of the region’s majority serves as a communicative resource driven by questions of U.S./Los Angeles identity and solidarity with speakers’ in-the- moment interlocutor(s), a process which has caused the original Salva- doran pronouns to also be reallocated and refunctionalized (Britain and Trudgill 1999) as resources for accomplishing Salvadoran identity. Members of this community make active use of their pronominal options in real-time interaction as they navigate the fluid, multifaceted identities that they and their interlocutors now embody in the U.S. context.
