Limited usefulness of the term[edit]

There is nothing such as South American Spanish, waht would make Rioplatense spanish more close to coastal colombian than to Cuban or Mexican Spanish? This article is a gringo invention in their attempt to catch the complexity of spanish variants, of which they can not even dream of have a mere idea of. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 88.149.104.126 (talkcontribs)

The above, anonymous assertion that there is no such thing as South American Spanish is factually correct. I have added a friendly amendment to the article, focusing on that point. Kotabatubara (talk) 16:53, 2 November 2011 (UTC)
I've never heard there are so many variations between Spanish spoken in South American countries that make reasonable to make an article other than American Spanish. Even in the WP:ES there's no such an article. The article, by the way, is mostly a list of links. MPA Neto (talk) 11:08, 9 March 2015 (UTC)

"Original research"?[edit]

Why does this article have a cautionary note saying "This article may contain original research"? What's original about an article that does no more than distribute attention to various links? Kotabatubara (talk) 18:19, 2 November 2011 (UTC)

South American Spanish is no dialect. There is hardly any particularity that distinguishes the large group of dialects spoken in South America from other varieties of Spanish. Dentren | Talk 03:57, 1 February 2012 (UTC)
This is sure original research. A weird research. The useful information shoud be all in the article American Spanish (with equivalents in other languages), that has been moved oddly to Spanish in the Americas. MPA Neto (talk) 11:08, 9 March 2015 (UTC)
