Written entirely in Spanish, this is the ideal introduction to Spanish linguistics for students. Using clear explanations, it covers all the basic concepts required to study the structural aspects of the Spanish language - phonetics and phonology, morphology and syntax - as well as the history of Spanish, its dialects and linguistic variation. This second edition incorporates new features designed to enhance its usefulness for classroom teaching: chapters have been added on the sociolinguistics of Spanish in the USA, and on semantics and pragmatics. The chapter on syntax has been considerably expanded. Numerous exercises have been added throughout the book, as well as a new glossary to help with technical terms.Read more

Reviews & endorsements
'The gold standard among introductory texts on Hispanic linguistics.' Joe Barcroft, Washington University, St LouisSee more reviews
'Unlike other textbooks, this one tells the truth about Hispanic linguistics. Here, for the first time, syntax, phonology, semantics, and pragmatics are introduced by means of contemporary models, not outdated approaches that practising linguists gave up decades ago.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
