Most people modify their ways of speaking, writing, texting, and e-mailing, and so on, according to the people with whom they are communicating. This fascinating book asks why we 'accommodate' to others in this way, and explores the various social consequences arising from it.
Las familias de palabras [Word Families: Relationships Between Morphology, Semantics, and Argument Structure in Verbs Derived from “decir” and “sagen”]
Relaciones entre morfología, semántica y estructura argumental en las raíces «dec(ir)» y «sag(en)»
De Gruyter Beihefte zur Zeitschrift für romanische Philologie 388
For the first time in the history of research both in Spanish and German linguistics, this book undertakes a comparative study of the lexical structures commonly understood as ‘word families’ and the theoretical and methodological bases of their analysis. Using the word families derived from dec(ir) and sag(en) as a main reference point, the study discusses different theoretical approaches and positions.
