The Maracucho Spanish (also called maracaibero, marabino or zuliano) is the variety of Spanish generally spoken in the Zulia state in the northwest of Venezuela and the west of the Falcón state (Mauroa Municipality). Unlike the dialects from Caracas or the Venezuelan Andean region, the maracaibero is typically voseo. Preserves for this combination the shape of the second person plural familiar (vosotros), without apócope or syncopation, which distinguishes it from the Chilean voseo and the Rioplatense voseo, respectively.
