Meaning and the Components of Grammar/
El significado y los componentens de la gram�tica

Javier Guti�rrez-Rexach (ed.)
The Ohio State University, Columbus

This books contains twelve papers which address several issues
pertaining meaning and interpretation in Spanish. The central focus of
the volume is to explore how meaning is expressed through different
grammatical components --namely syntactic structure, prosody, and
discourse/text structure-, and also the theoretical repercussions for a
variety of frameworks. Among the topics covered in the papers are the
following ones: ellipsis, determiners and determiner phrases, the
grammar of emotions, the past and the present perfect, intonation and
discourse structure, lexical presuppositions, metalinguistic terms and
discourse typology in lexical semantics, and discourse markers.

Este libro consta de doce trabajos que tratan distintos aspectos sobre
significado e interpretaci�n en espa�ol. El foco principal del volumen
es la exploraci�n de c�mo el significado se expresa a trav�s de
diferentes componentes gramaticales --como son la estructura sint�ctica,
la prosodia, y la estructura del discurso y los textos--, y tambi�n las
repercusiones te�ricas en diversos marcos de an�lisis ling��stico. Entre
los temas que se analizan en los distintos articulos destacan los
siguientes: la elipsis, los determinantes y sintagmas determinantes, la
gram�tica de las emociones, el pret�rito perfecto y ei indefinido, la
entonaci�n y la estructura del discurso, las presuposiciones l�xicas,
los t�rminos mataling�isticos y la tipologia de los discursos en el
marco de la sem�ntica l�xica, y los marcadores de discurso.
