Abstract

In this article, the constructions with light verbs are described as understood by different authors, such as Cattell (1984), Piera & Varela (1999) or Alonso Ramos (2004), among others. Later, the text characterizes formations with light verbs hacer and, to a lesser extent, dar followed by an Anglicism with the suffix -ing: hacer un catering or hacer surfing. In addition, the article includes the syntactic and semantic characteristic of such structures. Finally, a corpus includes the most common examples of these constructions.
