Abstract:

Written entirely in Spanish, this is the ideal introduction to Spanish linguistics
for students. Using clear explanations, it covers all the basic concepts
required to study the structural aspects of the Spanish language - phonetics
and phonology, morphology and syntax - as well as the history of Spanish, its
dialects and linguistic variation. This second edition incorporates new
features designed to enhance its usefulness for classroom teaching: chapters
have been added on the sociolinguistics of Spanish in the USA, and on
semantics and pragmatics. The chapter on syntax has been considerably
expanded. Numerous exercises have been added throughout the book, as
well as a new glossary to help with technical terms.

- Avoids complicated language, allowing students to grasp the concepts and
improve their knowledge of Spanish
- 'Application boxes' encourage students to see how the theory relates to the
practice
- Numerous exercises throughout help instructors test their students'
understanding

Reviews

'The gold standard among introductory texts on Hispanic linguistics.' Joe
Barcroft, Washington University, St Louis

'Unlike other textbooks, this one tells the truth about Hispanic linguistics.
Here, for the first time, syntax, phonology, semantics, and pragmatics are
introduced by means of contemporary models, not outdated approaches that
practising linguists gave up decades ago. It includes not only the basic facts,
but also fascinating regional, social, and historical variation.' John M. Lipski,
Pennsylvania State University
