Book Information


Title: Polifuncionalidad, polisemia y estrategia retórica
Subtitle: Los signos discursivos con base atributiva entre oralidad y escritura
Written By: Martin Hummel
Series Title: De Gruyter Beihefte zur Zeitschrift für romanische Philologie 374

Polysemy and polyfunctionality are key components in the motivational structure of discourse markers. In this study the author investigates adjectival units that contribute to discourse formation in the spoken Spanish of Chile. The author shows that polyfunctionality drives not only polysemy but also grammaticalization. This grammaticalization is examined by the author in the field of tension between oral and written traditions.
