Description:

This book contains twelve papers which address several issues pertaining meaning and interpretation in Spanish. The central focus of the volume is to explore how meaning is expressed through different grammatical components --namely syntactic structure, prosody, and discourse/text structure-, and also the theoretical repercussions for a variety of frameworks. Among the topics covered in the papers are the following ones: ellipsis, determiners and determiner phrases, the grammar of emotions, the past and the present perfect, intonation and discourse structure, lexical presuppositions, metalinguistic terms and discourse typology in lexical semantics, and discourse markers.


Este libro consta de doce trabajos que tratan distintos aspectos sobre significado e interpretaciön en español. El foco principal del volumen es la exploración de cómo el significado se expresa a través de diferentes componentes gramaticales --como son la estructura sintáctica, la prosodia, y la estructura del discurso y los textos--, y también las repercusiones teóricas en diversos marcos de análisis lingüístico. Entre los temas que se analizan en los distintos articulos destacan los siguientes: la elipsis, los determinantes y sintagmas determinantes, la gramática de las emociones, el pretérito perfecto y ei indefinido, la entonación y la estructura del discurso, las presuposiciones léxicas, los términos matalingüisticos y la tipologia de los discursos en el marco de la semántica léxica, y los marcadores de discurso.
