Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] In the second half of the 18th century, the plantation slave model began to be established in Cuba, which would lead to the development of its own dynamic, which would be unmarked from the continental slave model. From a linguistic perspective, the peculiarity of the institution in the Cuban area leads to the creation of a heterogeneous lexicon, which was collected in texts that are not usually considered documentary resources for the study of this vocabulary: technical manuals. The study focuses on this textual typology, proposing the analysis of the manual Cultivation of the coffee tree or tree that produces coffee by Don Pablo Bouloix (1820), adaptation to Spanish of Laborie's manual, The Coffee Planter of Saint Domingo, from the year 1798. The research will focus on the lexicon, specifically, on the labels with which slaves were designated according to certain parameters such as age or the role played in the administration of the mill. The comparative analysis of the semantic settlement of the lexical units based on diachronic lexicography will have as its ultimate aim to show the existence of a Cuban vocabulary marked in diatopia.
