Message 1: Syntax of Cuban Spanish

Subject: Syntax of Cuban Spanish

An M.A. student of mine is working on the syntax of Cuban Spanish. We are
therefore looking for 

- specific constructions which seem to be restricted to the Spanish spoken
 in Cuba
- constructions present in the syntax of Cuban Spanish which show up in
other (but not in all) varieties of Spanish
- bibliographical references of all sorts with respect to Cuban
Spanish Syntax (even isolated examples in general works of syntax).

Of course we know Kany's "American Spanish Syntax", but there the specific
references to Cuban Spanish are scarce, not always explicit, and, anyway,
most of the subjects he deals with are not syntax proper (but rather
morphology or lexicon related.

We will be grateful for every (even very small) hint and post a summary of
the results.

Yours sincerely

Hello everybody!

Does anybody know of any kind of published work on Marathi
quantifiers? Any suggestions would be appreciated.
