Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] In this article, some lexical creativity procedures in the interlanguage of Italian-speaking Spanish as a foreign language (ELE) learners are analyzed with the aim of observing the cognitive strategies that are most frequently used in the process of recovery and construction of their mental lexicon in Spanish. From the theoretical point of view, this study is framed in the interlanguage analysis model of learners of related languages of Schmid (1994), which considers output as the product of the activation of three cognitive macro-strategies: congruence, Correspondence and difference. The data analyzed come from a corpus of non-native speakers (CORpus del Espaañol de los Italiaos, CORESPI) (Bailini 2016) and the analysis focuses on the observation of three lexical creation procedures: 1) traces of L1; 2) word coinage by spelling or morphological adaptation and 3) word derivation mechanisms. The data show that, in informants whose L1 is similar to the LE, these lexical creation procedures are especially productive. From this it follows that the analysis of this type of output represents a starting point to design a didactic work that, on the one hand, re-orients the erroneous inferences and, on the other, enhances and stimulates those that lead to the production of items. correct in the LE.
