Title: La Ortografía Sincrónica del Español
Subtitle: A Base de Estadísticas Comparativas
Written By: RichardV.Teschner
Series Title: LINCOM Studies in Romance Linguistics 10

El presente libro, que representa una continuación y expansión de la obra
llevada a cabo por Mosterín (1981) y Weisskopf (1994) sobre la ortografía
del castellano, pretende ser una taxonomía a la vez de una investigación
de la ortografía española que se basa en dicha taxonomía. A través de un
minucioso análisis de la multitud de estadísticas sobre la ortografía del
español que el autor ha compilado de un CD-ROM suyo (El triple diccionario
de la lengua espanola/The Triple Dictionary of the Spanish Language
(TRIDIC)), las ya reconocidas areas problematicas de dicha ortografía--los
grafemas y/o dígrafos b/v, c/qu/k, c/s/z/, g/j, h, ll/y/hi, m/n/ñ y x más
las diferentes representaciones ortográficas de la yod y la wau--se han
sometido a un riguroso examen con el fin de producir reglas nuevas (o de
rehacer y refinar reglas antiguas) para el uso de todos los grafemas y
dígrafos problemáticos. Las reglas ortograficas que este análisis genera
se dividen entre las de categoria mayor y las de categoria menor. Luego de
presentadas, analizadas e ilustradas, se vuelven a ofrecer en forma
resumida las que más sobresalen, con la finalidad de establecer una nueva
base para el aprendizaje de la ortografía del castellano. El libro consiste
en diez capítulos mas los apendices que los acompañan.
This statistics-driven work, which uses both Mosterín (1981) and Weisskopf
(1994) as points of departure, is a taxonomy-based analysis of the problem
areas in Spanish orthography--b/v, c/qu/k, c/s/z, gj, h, ll/y/hi, m/n/ñ, x
and the various spellings of yod and wau--that attempt to refine old rules
and generate new ones. Each chapter states and then sums up all rules. The
statistics are compiled from the author's El triple diccionario de la
lengua española/The Tripe Dictionary of the Spanish Language (TRIDIC).
