Resumen

GARCIA TESORO, Ana Isabel  y  JANG, Ji Son. Considerations on solidarity ‘usted’ in the Spanish spoken in Medellín (Colombia). Rev. signos [online]. 2022, vol.55, n.108, pp.212-234. ISSN 0718-0934.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-09342022000100212.

This paper reflects on the notion of solidarity ‘usted’ in Spanish spoken in Medellin (Colombia). Based on the data obtained through surveys and interviews, we postulate that the use of solidarity ‘usted’ in the city of Medellin is not currently observed, as has been indicated for other Spanish varieties. In previous studies on the pronominal selection in Medellin Spanish (Jang, 2010), it has been indicated that 'usted' is used very often among friends or family, but that does not mean affectionate and intimate, rather maintains a connotation of respect and psychological distance. In Medellin, 'usted' is used in solidarity relationships by respect (e.g. towards parents), as habit, as a matter of identity (Jang, 2013) or linguistic accommodation.
