This book applies recent theoretical insights to trace the development of Castilian and Latin American Spanish from the This book applies recent theoretical insights to trace the development of Castilian and Latin American Spanish from the Middle Ages onwards, through processes of repeated dialect mixing both within the Iberian Peninsula and in the New World. The author contends that it was this frequent mixing which caused Castilian to evolve more rapidly than other varieties of Hispano-Romance, and which rendered Spanish particularly subject to levelling of its linguistic irregularities and to simplification of its structures.

From Latin to Spanish and Portuguese, the natural class of sonorant consonants — laterals, rhotics, and nasals — often underwent drastic phonological changes. In the course of the development of what are called today the Romance languages, consonants have retained similarities to Latin and also exhibited divergences from such, as well as among themselves. It is well attested that intervocalic consonants underwent lenition in Ibero-Romance, most famously in the case of the class of obstruents. It bears noting that some of these changes, such as lenition and dissimilation, were observed in some languages but not in others. Various linguists Bergquist ; Lief ; Tsukada ; et al. What is of interest is that it is still unclear how two languages, such as Spanish and Portuguese, can undergo distinct phonological changes even though the areas where each language is spoken are in such close proximity. This paper will address two issues.

International Colloquium. A presentation. Complex prepositions are sequences such as Eng. This double character has led linguists to consider the existence of a category named 'complex preposition'. But t he very concept of a complex preposition is open to debate: it is well that the two reference grammars of English defend different positions on the subject: while Quirk et al. In the last years there has been significant research in the field, mainly under the heading of grammaticalization studies, as the work of Cifuentes Honrubia and Hoffmann , among others, show. Indeed, from a diachronic perspective, complex prepositions often seem to be transient expressions that can be found on a path of grammaticalization.
Inflection - semantics interfaces in a typological setting: number and non-specific nominal items in Old Spanish legal codices. The present inquiry has been spurred by the observation of the morphological behaviour of human-denoting common nouns in Old Spanish codices 13th to 15th century. In spite of the fact that legal norms are designed to apply to an unrestricted number of potential addressees, this class of nominal items surfaces nearly exclusively in the singular, with plural forms being strongly underrepresented. A series of parameters converge to account for this form - function mismatch, thus revealing an essentially interdependent nature of linguistic mechanisms underlying it: type of inflection inherent vs. The pervasiveness of the singular is traced back to non-specificity.
Spanish Research Methodologies Linda Egan, Professor. The course will begin with a theoretical discussion of how and why languages change. Students will examine the lexical, phonological and syntactic changes that have occurred from Vulgar Latin to Old Spanish to Medieval Spanish c. Particular emphasis will be paid to some of the earliest textual manifestations of the Spanish language: namely, the jarchas, glosas, notarial documents, El Cantar del Mio Cid, and the Alfonsine writings.
