Title: 3,000 locuciones verbales y combinaciones frecuentes
URL: http://press.georgetown.edu/book/languages/3000-locuciones-verbales-y-combinaciones-frecuentes
Description:

This extensive Spanish language reference explains the logic behind more
than 3,000 frequently used verb phrases and combinations that make
Spanish speech sound native. Each entry includes a definition of the phrase
including its register, synonyms, antonyms, complementary expressions,
grammatical patterns, and examples of how the combinations are used in
easy and difficult structures. Most entries also point out other factors to be
taken into account, such as whether an expression is to be used in isolation,
after explaining a cause, or if it shouldn't be used at the beginning of a
sentence. The book presents generative patterns for combinations based on
conceptual metaphors and grammar structures, details families of
expressions as separate charts, and contains an index by complement.
Featuring a wide range of varieties of Spanish, this volume includes both
peninsular and New World Spanish and draws on both written and spoken
corpora. Based on sound research in cognitive linguistics and written entirely
in Spanish, this valuable reference will be useful to advanced students of
Spanish, teachers of Spanish, translators, and writers.
