Title: La Ortografía Sincrónica del Español a Base de Estadísticas Comparativas
Written By: Richard V. Teschner
Series Title: LINCOM Studies in Romance Linguistics 10
Description:

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).
