Message 1: Cocoliche
Date: 21-Oct-2005
From: Giuliana Fiorentino <giuliana.fiorentinounimol.it>
Subject: Cocoliche

Regarding query: http://www.linguistlist.org/issues/16/16-2595.html#2

Dear All,
I apologize because of the so big delay in summing up the various answers I
received to my query on Cocoliche.
I thank colleagues who posted to me (in alphabetical order):
Steven Byrd (University of Texas-Austin), Mercedes Paz (University of
Illinois at Urbana-Champaign), Rosa Maria Rodriguez, Stephan Schmid
(Phonetisches Laboratorium der Universität Zürich), Christine E. Swain
(Hamilton College, Clinton, New York).
Regarding the bibliographical references, I list the titles at the end of
this message.
On the contrary, regarding the possibility of finding a corpus of data, the
common opinion is that there is no electronic corpus accessible, maybe
because the phenomenon is above all extinguished. I have been invited to
check if there are tango lyrics or literature in cocoliche, and to contact
John Lipski who will probably have an extensive bibliography on the topic
and to look at the bibliography and some samples of lunfardo in Greet
Cotton and Sharp; and to consider the possibility that there is a Library
in Buenos Aires dedicated to these topics.
Thank you again to everybody,
