Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain.

Title: Un análisis componencial del verbo "correr" en el contexto de Chile
Written By: Kerwin Anthony Livingstone
Series Title: Edición Lingüística 78

Esta presente labor tiene como finalidad hacer un análisis componencial del
verbo “Correr” en español, que significa en inglés “To Run”, en el contexto
de Chile o más bien, en Concepción que es la ciudad capital de la XVIII
Región de Chile, lugar en donde se llevó a cabo este estudio. Se presenta
un marco teórico de la semántica, tomando en consideración su relevancia a
este trabajo. Se da el planteamiento del estudio y los objetivos
correspondientes que se esperan lograr. Luego, se delimitan las hipótesis
del estudio tanto como los procesos metodológicos que se realizaron con el
fin de dar como resultado este análisis comprensivo de dicho verbo.

Tras hacer esto, se pone especial atención al análisis componencial que se
hizo. En dicho análisis se pondrá énfasis tanto en el significado
denotativo - el significado de una palabra fuera de cualquier contexto y
este significado es objetivo - como en el significado connotativo - el
significado que suele ser personal, individual y sin cuestión es subjetivo.
Además, se podrán ver los distintos contextos en que aparece este verbo y
sus acepciones diferentes.

Palabras claves: sentido, referente, connotación, denotación, semántica,
semántica general, análisis componencial, verbo, “correr”.
