CONTRERAS OYARZUN, Constantino  and  BERNALES LILLO, Mario. Linguistic-etnographic features of a lateral area. Estud. filol. [online]. 2002, n.37, pp.29-52. ISSN 0071-1713.

This study presents a description of conservative forms of the spoken Spanish in the Nahuelbuta area (North-west of the Araucanian region). These forms are related to the cultural aspects of colonial tradition. These circumstances are nowadays maintained by a Hispanic-Creole society ("sociedad hispano-criolla") of the frontier type that has displaced the native population towards adjacent territories. The mentioned Hispanic-Creole society has lived to the present much disconnected from the urban culture up to the present.
