Die hier genannten Einflüsse auf die kanarische Lexik werden in der vorliegenden Arbeit näher betrachtet, wobei dies stets in einem historischen Kontext geschehen soll.
Zuerst möchte der Verfasser jedoch einen Einblick in die äußerst vielfältige Lexikographie des kanarischen Spanisch geben und dabei wichtige Werke herausstellen.
Im Anschluss sollen neben dem guanchismo, americanismo, orígen marinero und portuguesismo noch weitere Einflussfaktoren auf das Kanarische ebenso beschrieben werden wie die Andalucismo- those, die in diesem Kontext nicht unerwähnt bleiben darf.
Im dritten Teil der Arbeit werden dann am Beispiel von Fuerteventura und los angeles Palma einige linguistische Besonderheiten dargestellt, die veranschaulichen, dass zwischen den verschiedenen Inseln viele kleine Differenzen zu beobachten sind, obwohl im gesamten Archipel grundsätzlich dieselbe Ausprägung der spanischen Sprache vorliegt.
