Abstract

In 1981, Polish canoeists (members of the Bystrze Academic Travel Club) made the first journey along the waters of the River Colca in the section located in Arequipa Province (Peru), along which the waters flow in a deep canyon. Information on this sporting achievement – and a description of the Canyon and its surrounding area filled the Peruvian press and tourist publications around the world, ensuring that the Colca Canyon became one of the most important goals for tourists anywhere in Peru from that time on. However, mass infl uxes of tourists, noisy trips, the development of hotel infrastructure and other items required in tourism have generated permanent change in the character of the Colca Valley, and done much to influence the lives of its inhabitants.

Abstract

The vesre is a linguistic phenomenon that until recently had been scarcely explored. This fact is due, among others, that very often the forms created in the framework of the vesre belong to the spoken modality and, for this reason, they are hardly registered in the lexicographical sources. In addition, with a certain frequency, this mechanism of lexical creation is identified only with Argentinean Spanish, leaving aside the other zones where it is a very productive mechanism. Hence, in this work we wish to focus our attention on another region, the Peruvian, in which, apparently, the use of vesreisms shows some vitality. For this purpose, we try to gather the scattered data in multiple dictionaries and fragmentary information found in other sources about the Peruvian vesre. Therefore, all the data we submit to the formal analysis supporting us, on the one hand, in the premises that we have used in the works on the Argentinian vesre, and, on the other, however fragmentary they may be, in the information that dictionaries provide us.
