of yeismo, or the different realizations of the palatal lateral /ll/ in
Spanish, and / or its merge with the mid-palatal fricative /y/. The
purpose is to compile in one volume the many works that are being
carried out on this topic in order to have a clear picture of the status of
this phenomenon in the different varieties of Spanish spoken in Latin
America, Spain, and any other places where Spanish is an official
Some topics may include, but are not limited to:
1. Sociolinguistic studies (age, gender, level of education, etc.)
2. Attitudes towards yeismo
3. Synchronic and Diachronic studies on yeismo
4. Mass media and yeismo, recommendations by style guides,
prescriptive attitudes in the academic arena etc.
5. Any other topics related to the evolution of yeismo in Spanish
