Variaci�n actual y evoluci�n historica:
los cliticos le/s, la/s, lo/s

FLORA KLEIN-ANDREU, State University of New York at Stony Brook

Se reabre la investigaci�n de un tema conocido--la variaci�n en el uso
de los cl�ticos espa�oles le/s la/s y lo/s--para esclarecer tanto su
situaci�n actual como su evoluci�n hist�rica. En relaci�n con este
tema se plantean las preguntas siguientes: �Cu�l es la relaci�n actual
entre distintas variedades geogr�ficas y distintas variedades
sociales? �C�mo se puede entender esta relaci�n, como producto
hist�rico?

La investigaci�n se basa en aproximada-mente 150 horas de
conversaci�n, grabada en distintas zonas geogr�ficas hist�ricamente
castellanas o relacionadas con Castilla. En cada una de ellas se
distingue tambi�n el habla de distintos grupos: Se recogen y analizan
muestras de hablantes de vida relativamente limitada a la zona
(generalmente rurales), compar�ndolas con muestras de la misma zona,
pero de hablantes de �mbito m�s extendido y mayor nivel educativo
(generalmente profesionales urbanos). Esto permite identificar, en
cada zona, un uso relativamente "m�s aut�ctono", distingui�ndolo del
que puede responder a normas m�s generalizadas, y determinar (1) en
qu� sentidos y medida difieren entre s�, y tambi�n (2) c�mo difiere
cada uno del uso de hablantes de niveles an�logos, pero de zonas
geogr�ficas diferentes.

Este procedimiento lleva a distinguir sistemas funcionales diferentes
que determinan el uso relativamente "m�s aut�ctono" de distintas zonas
geogr�ficas, y a proponer, como hip�tesis contrastable con la
documentaci�n hist�rica, una secuencia de reinterpretaciones que los
conectar�a temporalmente. Tambi�n permite entender el sentido de las
normas de preferencia en cuanto al uso de estas formas, tanto
expl�citas (prescriptivas) como f�cticas (inducibles del uso de
aceptaci�n m�s general), y las distintas observaciones tradicionales
sobre este tema, aclarando aparentes contradicciones.

Message 2: Arabic Ling: Comparative Morphology of Standard Egyptian Arabic

Subject: Arabic Ling: Comparative Morphology of Standard Egyptian Arabic

Comparative Morphology of Standard Egyptian Arabic
Hassan A. H. Gadalla, Assiut University

The major concern of this book is the comparison of the morphological
aspects of Standard Arabic (SA) and Egyptian Arabic (EA). It is
divided into five chapters. Chapter One provides a phonological
outline of SA and EA. It also analyses morphological basics and the
morphosyntactic preliminaries of the two varieties. Chapter Two is
devoted to the morphology of triradical and quadriradical verbs. In
addition, the inflection of verbs for aspect/mood and voice and a
treatment of verbal affixes and verb derivation are provided.

Chapter Three deals with the morphology of primary and deverbal nouns.
Moreover, the divergence between definite and indefinite nouns and the
inflection of nouns for case, gender and number are explained. The
formation of the diminutive is also illustrated. Chapter Four handles
the morphology of adjectival stems. Then, the difference between
definite and indefinite adjectives and the inflection of adjectives
for case, gender, number and degree are analyzed. Furthermore,
participial forms and relational adjectives are discussed. Chapter
Five is related to the morphology of closed-list classes, including
pronouns, prepositions, adverbs, as well as interrogative and
responsive particles. Finally, negative and possessive particles are
exhibited.
