This paper presents the contribution of María Vaquero to the study of Spanish in Puerto Rico. Her trajectory as professor, researcher, and member of the Academia Puertorriqueña de la Lengua Española is highlighted and put in its fair perspective in the framework of the origins and development of linguistic studies in Puerto Rico. María Vaquero, the most Puerto Rican of all Spaniards, the most Spaniard of all Puerto Ricans, has left a legacy to the study of Hispanic linguistics in Puerto Rico not only with benchmark works of outstanding scientific merit but as an inspirational model to future generations in the study of the vernacular.
