Dissertation Abstract:

This study outlines the development of Portuguese and Spanish verbal
morphology from Latin in the context of the Hispanic branch of Romance,
with a focus on the conjugational classes, whose number has been reduced to
only three in this branch of Western Romance. It is innovative in
approaching the topic as a study of sequential productive grammars in an
Item and Process type framework. We have found evidence to indicate that
in addition to regular phonological change, morphological restructuring
played an important role in the reclassification of the Latin verb classes
II-IV into the verb classes of the Hispano-Romance daughter languages. The
historical data studied have been collected from published secondary
sources of manuscript and dialectological data and supplemented with data
from searchable electronic corpora.
