Abstract:
The different Romance languages inherited from Latin the stressed pronouns NOS and VOS of 1pl and 2pl, respectively. However, the emergence of the compound forms NOS ALTEROS / VOS ALTEROS throughout the western and central Romania approximately in the 13th century triggered the replacement of the simple forms by the compound ones in certain varieties, the coexistence of both strategies in some, or their disappearance in others. With the aim to map these realities in the 20th century and provide a linguistic explanation, I will show the results from the dialect atlases AIS, ALF and ALPI.
