Abstract: Clauses with verbs of psychological reaction have, as most Spanish clauses do, flexibility in the order of their constituents. This means that although their most common order is Verb-Subject (VS), as in " Me gusta EL CHOCOLATE" (I like CHOCOLATE), it is possible to find constructions in the order Subject-Verb (SV), as in " EL CHOCOLATE me gusta " (I like CHOCOLATE). We have not found previous research examining the functional variable order of these clauses. Based on a corpus of Spanish spoken in Caracas, it is proposed that the VS order in clauses with verbs of psychological reaction increases the control of the experimenter on the action and reduce their involvement in the event, while the SV order leads to the opposite. This research also shows that the SV order in these clauses is influenced by linguistic variants pronoun, proper noun and absence of CIP; and the extralinguistic variables women and speakers from 24 to 34 years and 34 to 54 years of age, which may be an indicator that the clauses in question are experiencing a change in course.
