Description

Introducción a la lingüística hispánica actual: teoría y práctica has been specially designed for students of Spanish with little or no linguistic background, who need to understand the key concepts and constructs of Hispanic Linguistics.

The book has been carefully crafted to introduce the reader to the main areas of linguistics, both theoretical and applied. General Linguistics, Phonology and Phonetics, Morphology, Syntax, Semantics and Pragmatics, History of the Spanish Language, Language Variation, and Second Language Acquisition are concisely and accurately outlined, providing a comprehensive foundation in the field.

Features include:

  • written entirely in Spanish
  • sequenced exercises and engaging activities which facilitate the learning of each area of linguistics;
  • emphasis on the connections between theory and the actual use of the language throughout the book;
  • a selection of possible research projects and guidance on further reading in each chapter, giving students the necessary tools for in-depth exploration of each of the areas presented in the book;
  • a bilingual glossary of key linguistic terms;
  • a comprehensive e-resource with a wealth of additional materials, including audio clips and videos of the varieties of Spanish around the world, available at www.routledge.com/products/9780415631570.

Written in a clear and accessible manner, Introducción a la lingüística hispánica actual is the ideal introduction for all undergraduate students of Hispanic Linguistics. The book will also be of interest to graduate students with no prior exposure to linguistics.

Reviews

"This authoritative textbook represents a fresh approach to introducing students to the field of Hispanic linguistics. While it addresses the core linguistic areas of phonetics/phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, and pragmatics, it also includes chapters on the history of the Spanish language, linguistic variation and dialects, and language acquisition, in a broad look at various related areas. The textbook features many activities that encourage students to reflect inductively on linguistic issues and problems, and references various interactive websites and other sources to supplement and enrich the material. Instructors can access the teacher’s guide, which provides valuable information on the subject matter as well as suggestions for its presentation. The book also suggests areas for further research, lending itself to advanced undergraduate and graduate levels of instruction. Teachers, students and researchers of Hispanic linguistics will find an outstanding trove of well-researched information that promises to transform the way this material is taught." - Professor Dale A. Koike, University of Texas at Austin

"Written in an easy-to-read style, the eight chapters of Introducción a la lingüística hispánica actual: teoría y práctica give a comprehensive, well-organized and up-to-date view of all areas of Hispanic linguistics, including the less traditional field of first and second language acquisition. The authors address theoretical and practical questions, illustrating the discussion with situations that reflect the everyday use of language. Each chapter includes activities, suggestions for research projects and further reading, a list of key terms and concepts, a specialized bibliography, and a wealth of figures and summary tables that enhance the text and stimulate a deeper study of the Spanish language. This is indeed a masterful introduction, an ideal textbook for courses in this field." - Professor Carmen Silva-Corvalán,

"Si imagináramos esta Introducción como una gran casa, descubriríamos en ella múltiples puertas por las que acceder a un universo lingüístico amplio y variado. Los autores son generosos anfitriones que ofrecen al lector recursos para familiarizarse con las formas, las funciones y los usos de la lengua. Este volumen es una introducción a la lingüística a través del español; una obra completa, concisa, actualizada y bien dispuesta para la enseñanza, cuya claridad y versatilidad animan tanto a la lectura continua, como a la curiosa consulta." -Professor Francisco Moreno-Fernández, Universidad de Alcalá and Instituto Cervantes at Harvard University

"Cualquier texto de introducción a una lingüística específica supone siempre un difícil equilibrio entre lo general y lo particular cuya resolución exige encontrar un discurso expositivo claro, construir progresivamente los contenidos, asegurarse de que los avances teóricos en la disciplina y en el conocimiento de la lengua objeto de estudio estén debidamente reflejados y, por último, organizar tanto la exposición como los ejercicios, tareas y proyectos de modo atractivo y útil para estudiantes y profesores. Todos esos objetivos han sido alcanzados en esta Introducción a la lingüística hispánica. Se consigue en ella, partiendo de cero, una visión panorámica de los grandes temas de la lingüística hispánica no solo, como se hace habitualmente, en los terrenos fónico, gramatical y léxico, sino también en temas como la evolución y variación de la lengua o su aprendizaje y enseñanza. Será sin duda de gran utilidad a quienes la utilicen para comenzar o continuar sus estudios universitarios en lingüística hispánica." - Professor Guillermo Rojo, Universidad de Santiago de Compostela and Real Academia Española
