JIMENEZ ARIAS, María Elena. Regime solecism or preposition disease. MEDISAN [online]. 2011, vol.15, n.2, pp.261-279. ISSN 1029-3019.

The article deals with preposition background, general characteristics, classification, incorrect use (due to addition, disagreement or deletion), neutralization, and summary. Examples are shown in all cases, which is very useful to distinguish when it is attempted against the accuracy or purity of Spanish language because of the wrongly use of that particle. However, this is barely an approximation to the issue, taking into account that the problem is as complex as it is to solve it writing just a few pages; and then current linguistic rule can sanction nowadays some words that could be imposed perhaps tomorrow as valid due to the speakers´ repeated use.

Keywords : regime solecism; preposition; grammar; writing and composition; language vice.
