In parts of Central America, and also Argentina, they have a form of "tratando" a person called Vos. Vos,is more than tutear, mas allá que tu. Vos is, ultra-familiar, usually reserved for siblings and peers.
Some examples of verbs using the Vos form would be: decime (dime),¿Sos Vos? (¿Eres Tu),¿Vos,que quierés que te digo? (¿Que quieres que te digo?) Vos vení, (ven) Hermanito, hablás puras mentiras (hablas puras mentiras).
My question is; where can I find a reference on conjugation of verbs using the Vos form, especially irregular verbs.
I haven't been to Argentina lately, but just got back from Guatemala, and usage of Vos,seems to be dying out, with TU, taking it's place, come to think of it, Usted, also seems to be dying out, as it seems to be in Mexico.
Could Vos, be a throwback to the "old days", much like Vosotros?
Thanks for any information
