Message 1: Introduction to Spanish Linguistics textbook

Subject: Introduction to Spanish Linguistics textbook

I am looking for an Introduction to Spanish Linguistic textbook written in
Spanish.
I have been using Azevedo's "Introduccio´┐Żn a la llung´┐Żeistica" but I am
trying to look for other options.
I am specially interested in textbooks that include a sociolinguistic
approach.

Thank you for any information you can provide

Subject: Grammatical aspect and focus


Dear Colleagues,
I am working on the use of grammatical aspect ("viewpoint aspect" in
C. Smith's terminology) as a focussing device in text/discourse. I am
aware of Hopper's (1979) and Smith's (1991) work in this area but am
wondering if readers of this list can point me to additional
resources. Please send your communication to me at
aschrammgw.hamline.edu. If there is enough interest, I will naturally
post a summary to the list. Thank you in advance for any information I may
receive.
