© 2015 John Benjamins Publishing Company. First, we define the concept of pragmateme as a formula (prototypically multilexical and semantically compositional) restricted in his signified by the communication situation in which it is produced. Then, we briefly describe our dictionary of Spanish pragmatemes and, finally, we present pragmatemes variants in Spanish of the Rio de la Plata, Mexico and Colombia. We observe a huge diversity that ask for specific lexicographical descriptions.
