After a brief survey of the perception of morphological change in the
standard works of the Hispanic tradition in the 20th century, the
author first attempts to refine concepts such as analogy, leveling,
blending, contamination, etc. as they have been applied to Spanish. He
then revisits difficult problems of Spanish historical grammar and
explores the extent to which various types of morphological processes
may have operated in a given change. Selected problems are examined in
light of abundant textual evidence. Some include: the resistance to
change of Sp. dormir 'to sleep', morir 'to die', the vocalic sequence
/ee/, the reduction of the OSp. verbal suffixes -ades, -edes, -ides,
-odes, and the uncertain origin of Sp. eres 'you are'. Important
notions such as the directionality of leveling, phonological
vs. morphological change in the nominal and verbal paradigms, the
morphological spread of sound change, and the role of morphological
factors in apparent syntactic change are discussed.

This brief collection of refereed papers approaches several technical
as well as methodological aspects of the mathematical formalization of
natural language, particularly in syntax and in semantics. Such kind
of investigation is a prerequisite for the computational processing of
language and is narrowly related to current developments in other
disciplines, namely theoretical computer science and mathematical
logic. The volume offers a coherent picture of recent research on the
mathematics of language, and may be of interest to a wide audience,
from linguists to mathematicians. Detailed indexes of authors and
topics provide an easy access to the contents.
