Book description

A state-of-the-art, in-depth survey of the topics, approaches and theories in Spanish linguistics today. The language is researched from a number of different perspectives. This Handbook surveys the major advances and findings, with a special focus on recent accomplishments in the field. It provides an accurate and complete overview of research, as well as facilitating future directions. It encourages the reader to make connections between chapters and units, and promotes cross-theoretical dialogue. The contributions are by a wide range of specialists, writing on topics including corpus linguistics, phonology and phonetics, morphosyntax, pragmatics, the role of the speaker and speech context, language acquisition and grammaticalization. This is a must-have volume for researchers looking to contextualize their own research and for students seeking a one-stop resource on Spanish linguistics.


Advance praise:‘Exactly what the field of Hispanic Linguistics has long needed! It covers all the areas I would want and expect, ranging from theoretical to applied, and other areas I didn't realize I wanted to see until I found them. By pairing well-respected specialists with rising scholars, Geeslin ensures that it delves into the newest research areas and methodologies, while still providing the essential background such a book needs. Sacrificing neither breadth nor depth, this Handbook is sure to become the go-to reference for experts and novices alike.'

Gillian Lord - University of Florida

Advance praise:‘What sets this apart from similar surveys of its kind is its emphasis on encouraging cross-theoretical discussion and understanding of multiple perspectives of inquiry … [It] is sure to become an indispensable resource for students and scholars of the Spanish language and in the fields of general linguistics, cognition, culture, and education.'

Margaret Lubbers Quesada - University of Georgia

Advance praise:‘A thorough and up-to-date overview of the various theoretical approaches to Spanish linguistics and its main subfields. The chapters are accessible enough to be useful to a newcomer to the field, yet detailed enough to serve as a reference for experienced scholars.'

Timothy L. Face - University of Minnesota
