Description The online access to the manuscripts of the second edition of the Diccionario de autoridades (DA2) is a material of great interest for any kind of historiographic research or research on the history of Spanish since it is a very little studied source and presents a real gap in knowledge (Carriscondo and Carpi 2020b). The aim of the paper will be the study of the Spanish baroque slang voices (germanía) that appear in these manuscripts. We will be interested in seeing if there are differences in comparison with the first edition of the work (DA1), both in the number of the lemmatized voices and in their treatment, as indicated by the advance published in the Dicciocho portal (Carriscondo and Carpi 2020a). As a contrasting work we will use Chamorro’s dictionary of germanía (2002), although the Dicciocho preview tells us that there may also be original contributions from the members of the Spanish Academy themselves, probably arising fortuitously as a product of their own readings, which would in turn be the most valuable contribution of the study, both for the historical value of the voices and for the documentary value of the sources that support them. In the first place, our intention would be to complete the advance of the Dicciocho, which would then serve as a starting point for studies on the history of the lexicon of eighteenth-century marginality.
