Reviews

'The gold standard among introductory texts on Hispanic linguistics.' JoeBarcroft, Washington University, St Louis

'Unlike other textbooks, this one tells the truth about Hispanic linguistics.Here, for the first time, syntax, phonology, semantics, and pragmatics areintroduced by means of contemporary models, not outdated approaches thatpractising linguists gave up decades ago. It includes not only the basic facts,but also fascinating regional, social, and historical variation.' John M. Lipski,Pennsylvania State University
