Linguistic Competence across Learner Varieties of Spanish presents a
detailed examination of how five groups of learners/users of Spanish (N=25,
5 at each level) organize and use different aspects of their linguistic
competence. The five groups (Basic, Intermediate, Advanced, Superior and
Native Speakers) perform language tasks involving three dimensions of
language knowledge (verb lexis, sentence production, and metalinguistic
judgments of grammaticality) and three aspects of language use (conversa-
tional, descriptive, and narrative discourse).

The book consists of eight chapters:
Chapter 1 (Introduction),
Chapter 2 (Verb Lexis),
Chapter 3 (Sentence Formation),
Chapter 4 (Metalinguistic Judgments of Grammati- cality),
Chapter 5 (Conversational Discourse),
Chapter 6 (Descriptive Discourse),
Chapter 7 (Narrative Discourse), and
Chapter 8 (Linguistic Competence across Language Measures).

Chapters 2 to 7 follow a similar pattern, beginning with a (1) review of
major theoretical concerns, (2) methods/procedures for studying the
particular aspects of linguistic competence addressed in the chapter, (3)
categories for analyzing the linguistic data, (4) quantitative/qualitative
description of the performance of each
language group, and (5) Summary and Conclusion. Chapter 8 establishes
linguistic profiles for each language group and selected individuals by
contrasting the variable performance across the six dimensions of
linguistic competence.
