A Linguistic Introduction to Spanish

Ian Mackenzie
University of Newcastle upon Tyne

This is a university textbook that looks at virtually all aspects of
the Spanish language: the sound system, inflectional and derivational
morphology, syntax, the language's history from spoken Latin to the
present day, varieties of Spanish throughout the world,
sociolinguistic variation, Spanish bilingualism and creole
Spanish. Each chapter contains detailed linguistic analysis, together
with numerous illustrations, and is followed by exercises or a list of
seminar/essay topics. Few if any existing volumes contain such a
variety of information about Spanish. The first part of the book
covers the 'core' areas of linguistics - phonology, morphology and
syntax - and the focus here is on Castilian Spanish. In the second
part the scope is broadened to include Spanish as spoken in the rest
of the Peninsula, the Canary Islands, Latin America, the USA and the
Philippines. The final chapter contains, among other things,
descriptions of the Spanish-based creoles Palenquero and Chabacano.
The book is designed to appeal both to linguists and students of
Spanish. Thus the approach is descriptive rather than
theoretical. Ideally, the book should enable its readers to place
their practical knowledge of Spanish within a broader, more scientific
framework, although it will also be of interest to those who are
unfamiliar with Spanish.
