  • State-of-the-State Feature on Morphology: What is in a Word'
    • Abstract: Our expanded State-of-the-State Feature this year focuses on morphology. When language students think about morphology, they often consider the smallest units of meaning, such as prefixes, suffixes, and root words. These slight and subtle differences form the basis of communication and showcase linguistic expression in its humanistic splendor. Morphological nuances enrich language through endless combinations and variations.This issue of Hispania (100.4) features five articles that explore the social and linguistic importance of morphological variation. Variety implies diversity, which is humanistic at its core. What is variation, and why examine it' Do we as speakers and listeners understand variants in the same ... Read More

  • Introducción: Formación de palabras y variación
    • Abstract: La Universidad de Málaga (UMA) se ha convertido en un lugar de referencia sobre la investigación relacionada con la variación lingüística. A la publicación de monografías como Variación lingüística, traducción y cultura (2016) y Manual práctico de sociolingüística (2016) se añade la celebración, este mismo año, de la International Conference on Language Variation in Europe (ICLaVE 9). Tanto los dos libros como el congreso han surgido de la mano de investigadores de la UMA. Es por ello por lo que propusimos a la Editora de Hispania, la doctora Sheri Spaine Long, la posibilidad de publicar una colección de trabajos sobre variación lingüística relacionada, en este caso, con los procedimientos morfológicos de creación ...

  • Formación de palabras y variación: Algunas reflexiones a partir de
           ejemplos del español
    • Abstract: La variación constituye sin duda un tema de plena actualidad en las investigaciones lingüísticas. Si nos limitamos al ámbito de la lingüística hispánica, en los últimos años han visto la luz numerosos libros y monográficos de revistas que incluyen este término en su título y que, desde un punto de vista u otro, abordan el estudio de la variación en español.1 Como es sabido, la variación lingüística se empezó a estudiar en el seno de la dialectología y de la geografía lingüística, primero en relación con el nivel fónico y el léxico, más adelante con la morfología y la sintaxis. Posteriormente, los estudios sobre variación se han desarrollado en el seno de la sociolingüística variacionista, a partir de los trabajos ... Read More

  • La geografía de las palabras: Dimensiones en la formación léxica del
           español americano
    • Abstract: América constituyó una inmensa geografía para la expansión de la lengua española del siglo XVI. La nueva realidad trajo consigo novedosas denominaciones sobre territorios, objetos, animales y plantas, cargados de connotaciones mitológicas e irrealidad. Palabras como 'encantamiento' o 'ilusión', propias de los libros de caballerías, se usan para describir la primera percepción de un continente insólito:(1)que para hazer relaçión a los Reyes de las cosas que vían, no bastaran mill lenguas a referillo, ni su mano para lo escrevir, y que le pareçía qu'estava encantado. (Las Casas 1989: 93)(2)estaban tan admirados, que unos a otros se decían: ¿Qué es aquesto que vemos' ¿Esta es ilusión o encantamiento' ¡Tan grandes ... Read More

  • Entre limonetis y malaguitas: Estudio del léxico divergente de
           proximidad. Nuevos datos del Proyecto CONVERLEX-Málaga
    • Abstract: La identidad social característica de Andalucía en el siglo XXI comenzó a forjarse en la segunda mitad del siglo pasado y hoy se manifiesta lingüísticamente como una nueva variedad koinizada (Villena Ponsoda y Vida Castro 2017a y 2017b). El fenómeno lingüístico mixto es el resultado de dos poderosas transformaciones sociales: por una parte, el despertar de España al exterior tras el ostracismo en que quedó el país tras la guerra civil y, por otra parte—concretamente en Andalucía—el desarrollo incontrolado de una industria turística que propulsó la migración del campo a las ciudades, paralela a la constante emigración al exterior o a las zonas industriales del norte de la península. El fenómeno sociolingüístico ... Read More

           español coloquial: De lo conversacional a lo digital
    • Abstract: En el marco de las descripciones de la morfología léxica en español (Almela 1999; Alvar 2005; Varela 2005; Díaz 2012), esta investigación asume como presupuesto inicial la existencia de una correlación entre procedimientos de formación de palabras o algún tipo de formante y la variación diafásica, esto es, la variación lingüística condicionada por la situación comunicativa.1 En esta línea, existen estudios, como el de Escoriza (2006), entre otros, que insisten en esta correlación entre variación diafásica y léxico (fallecer, morir o palmarla). Sin embargo, en este análisis no se adopta un concepto restringido de variación, como fenómeno que exige la elección entre diferentes variables lingüísticas, adscritas a las ... Read More

  • Sobre la delimitación entre compuestos sintagmáticos y locuciones:
           Nuevas aportaciones desde la diacronía
    • Abstract: Uno de los tipos compositivos más productivos del español es la composición sintagmática o composición imperfecta, es decir, el mecanismo de formación de palabras que consiste en la unión de dos o más palabras (como en la composición léxica o prototípica), pero con la particularidad de que no existe una unión gráfica entre sus constituyentes (como en paso de cebra, ojo de buey o perro policía). En palabras de Ruiz Gurillo (2002), un compuesto sintagmático sería "una formación regular de la lengua que se fija y se establece en ella como una unidad léxica compuesta, pero que, a diferencias de las yuxtapuestas o prototípicas, no funciona como una palabra a todos los efectos (unidad gráfica, acentual, sintáctica ...

  • Word Order and Linguistic Factors in the Second Language Processing of
           Spanish Passive Sentences
    • Abstract: One linguistic aspect of both first language (L1) and second language (L2) acquisition is to acquire the word order patterns of a given language. The most frequent word order pattern in a language is its canonical word order, which is considered the most neutral ordering in terms of information structure. For Spanish, similar to English and many other languages, canonical word order is Subject-Verb-Object (SVO). Subject and object are grammatical roles, but one can also look at such sentences in terms of semantic or thematic roles such as agent and patient. Canonical word order is exemplified in (1), in which SVO = Agent-Action-Patient.(1)Roberto critica a Susana.Robert A criticizes a-ACC Susan P'Robert ... Read More

  • The Teaching and Learning of Spelling in the Spanish Heritage Language
           Classroom: Mastering Written Accent Marks
    • Abstract: Literacy instruction has long been at the center of Spanish heritage language (SHL) education (Colombi and Harrington 2012; Valdés 1995, 2005). This emphasis responds to the reality that many Spanish speakers in the United States acquired the language in community- and home-based settings, usually with little access to formal education or print exposure in the language. As a consequence, when SHL learners begin their Spanish studies—normally as adolescents or adults in secondary or postsecondary education—even those with fairly well-developed oral and aural skills typically have underdeveloped Spanish literacy skills (Chevalier 2004).Among literacy subcomponents, spelling, and especially the use of written accent ...

  • Tiempo de fuga: Desterritorializaciones en Madeinusa de Claudia Llosa
    • Abstract: Una de las películas más polémicas de la cinematografía peruana es Madeinusa (2006) de Claudia Llosa. El filme presenta una ficción escrita por Llosa: desde el Viernes Santo hasta el Domingo de Resurrección, el pueblo de Manayaycuna celebra la fiesta del Tiempo Santo. El pueblo cree que durante estos tres días Cristo está muerto y no puede ver, ni juzgar, los pecados de los hombres. Por eso, en el Tiempo Santo los habitantes de Manayaycuna bailan, se emborrachan, roban, hacen orgías, e incluso asesinan.1 La controversia se ha centrado en la manera en que Madeinusa representa a las mujeres y a los indígenas de los Andes. Buena parte de la crítica ha interpretado a Madeinusa como una representación de dichas ... Read More

  • Restored Roots: Muntu as a Healing Agent in Pelo bueno, pelo malo by
           Carmen Montañez
    • Abstract: Within the African Diaspora, hair is very important. For some, it is a major source of individual creative self-expression; for others, it is a source of shame and marginalization, as well as a marker of social status. The novel in this study, Carmen Montañez's Pelo bueno, pelo malo (2006), illustrates the struggle of a Puerto Rican woman to accept her natural hair texture. The work powerfully addresses the important issue of self-hatred based on hair texture and uses African-influenced principles and practices as a vehicle to heal.1To demonstrate this, I will begin by addressing the historical importance of hair and its surrounding culture, acknowledging scholarship that focused on hair and its role within Puerto ...

    • Abstract: Los carteles cinematográficos que circularon durante la Edad de Oro del cine mexicano fueron esenciales para su difusión.1 Estas obras revelan las tensiones surgidas a raíz del proyecto nacionalista posrevolucionario y el deseo de imponer, en el interior pero también en el exterior del país, una imagen internacional y cosmopolita. Dichas tensiones se agudizan en la publicidad que promovía las películas del género de rumberas. Sus protagonistas, mujeres que meneaban el cuerpo, cantaban en medio de escenografías imposibles y se movían en los márgenes de la moralidad de la época, no encajaban en las imágenes homogeneizadoras que intentaban unificar el territorio mexicano, en el marco del discurso nacionalista, ni ...

    • Abstract: Las relaciones entre José Luis Castillo-Puche y Ramón J. Sender no se limitan tan solo a una correspondencia, más o menos regular, iniciada a finales de la década de los sesenta y que solo concluye con la desaparición del escritor aragonés en 1982, cuando preparaba su regreso definitivo a España desde su residencia californiana de San Diego. Aunque en una de estas cartas que aquí presentamos, la del 17 de junio de 1979, Sender asegura ser, "por lo menos", veinticinco años mayor que su interlocutor, lo cierto es que Castillo-Puche, nacido en 1919 en la ciudad murciana de Yecla, y perteneciente a la denominada generación del 50, era tan solo dieciocho años menor que Sender, nacido, como se sabe, en 1901 y originario ...

In effect, the study explores the place of the reader in the hermeneutical labyrinths constructed by Unamuno in six key works: Vida de Don Quijote y Sancho, Niebla, Abel Sánchez, Cómo se hace una novela, Don Sandalio, jugador de ajedrez, and San Manuel Bueno, mártir.In the introduction, Álvarez-Castro establishes the study's general focus on the relationship between author, text, and reader.

On the book's cover, there is an image of a bull outside the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao created by painted semi-naked human bodies that is a striking visual representation of one of the principal motifs of this study: the bullfight as symbolized by both human and non-human animals. Beilin's extensive scholarship on the subject enlightens the reader on the various ways in which the bullfight can be used to interpret Spanish culture in the past and in the present.

Las aproximaciones al tema son abundantes: moral, psicológica, sexual, lingüística, estética, artística, filosófica, económica, entre otras. La relevancia continua que caracteriza al tema incentiviza la articulación de proyectos enfocados en torno a este problema. Oswaldo Estrada sin duda es consciente de dichas circunstancias.

En México, destaca la producción textual bilingüe o multilingüe de autores nahuas y mayas contemporáneos. Un ejemplo importante es la antología bilingüe maya-español U túumben k'aayilo'ob x-ya'axche': Los nuevos cantos de la ceiba (Vol. 2); es una producción literaria de 30 escritores de la península de Yucatán editada por Donald H. ...

The author considers Spain her second home as she was born on the US military base of Torrejón de Ardoz near Madrid six months after Franco's death in 1975, and her deep interest in and knowledge of this period of Spanish history is patently evident.Linville's chronological exploration of the literary and cinematic representations of the maquis lends an important sociopolitical ...

    • Abstract: Molinaro's study—the first published book by an individual author on Giménez Bartlett's nine crime novels popularly named after its narrator-protagonist as the Petra Delicado series—explores the gendering of crime fiction, in particular the police procedural. The main thesis of Policing Gender and Alicia Giménez Bartlett's Crime Fiction is that Giménez Bartlett's use of formula fiction in novels published between 1996 and 2013 serves to reflect issues related to contemporary Spain such as immigration, homelessness, and most particularly, the often contentious relationship between the sexes. Individual novels treat a variety of topics related to gender, for example, rape in Ritos de muerte, castration anxiety in ... Read More

As shown in his extensively researched introduction, Del teatro a la novela: El ritual del disfraz en las Novelas ejemplares de Cervantes fills a gap in a body of criticism that has previously only identified the integral function of theatricality within specific novellas, or as a presupposed quality of the author's prose in general. Olid Guerrero's monograph therefore seeks to determine the efficacy of the language of theatricality as a lens for understanding the Novelas ejemplares globally, with ... Read More

    • Abstract: On the centennial of Juan Rulfo's birth in 1917, Pol Popovic Karic's En pos de Juan Rulfo is one of many publications that can be expected on the Jalisco native's creative canon. Popovic Karic envisions his efforts in personal terms and begins with a letter to the iconic author "para cumplir, en cierta medida, con mi frustrado deseo de comunicarme con él" (11). En pos de Juan Rulfo is, nonetheless, a fairly standard anthology of twelve independent essays whose organizational glue is an exegesis of the narrative of one of Latin America's most significant writers.The anthology deals almost exclusively with Rulfo's two canonical works, dedicating about the same amount of space to an analysis of Pedro Páramo as to ...

For example, some, while growing up in a family where the target language was used exclusively, have had daily opportunities to develop listening comprehension and speaking, but not reading comprehension and writing. Others have participated in dual immersion courses where they learned to read and write. An American-based assessment company, Avant, has taken the initiative to design and develop an online instrument to test the Spanish of heritage language learners at grade 7 through adult—the Spanish Heritage Test (SHT). The fruit of collaboration with ... Read More

Gramática para la composición aims to ease this frustration by offering a single text that serves as both course book and reference manual for undergraduate composition classes. In order to meet this two-part goal, the text thematically groups grammatical topics and vocabulary by the discourse contexts in which they occur most frequently. These structures and lexicon are then rehearsed through worksheets and in-class communication exercises that prepare students to apply the new material to a genre of writing that focuses on the same ...

Hombres desnudos won the Premio Planeta in 2015, although many readers discount this accolade given the fact that there are so many literary prizes available in Spain. Giménez Bartlett also won the Premio Nadal in 2011 for her novel Donde nadie te encuentre, and she has written nine novels of detective fiction with Petra Delicado as the protagonist. However, she is still not recognized throughout Spain, which is a huge disservice to such a brilliant writer. A strong fan base ... Read More
