This revised edition of Bilingual Grammar of English-Spanish Syntax is a valuable comparative analysis of the inter-lingual differences between English and Spanish. All thirty-six sections of the book have been revised in order to cover a broad scope of dialects with as much clarity as possible. The exercises, many of which are framed bilingually, facilitate the development of the student's skills, through translation from one language into the other, or through restating grammatical constructions in one language. Bilingual Grammar of English-Spanish Syntax is an important tool for anyone teaching or working with Spanish and English.

Anaphora Resolution in Children and Adults

An Experimental Study of Mature Speakers and Learners of Basque

This work focuses on the comprehension of null and overt subject pronouns in intrasentential anaphora contexts in Basque, a language which employs overt referential devices that fall out of the scope of what traditionally counts as third person pronouns, namely the demonstrative hura 'that' and the quasipronoun bera '(s)he (him/herself)'. Data from native adults obtained from two experimental offline tasks on the referential properties and the discourse features of null and overt pronouns set a baseline for comparison with a) the i nsights reported in descriptive grammars and with b) developmental data from 6-8-year-old child L1 and child L2.

The correct interpretation of Multiword Units (MWUs) is crucial to many applications in Natural Language Processing but is a challenging and complex task. In recent years, the computational treatment of MWUs has received considerable attention but there is much more to be done before we can claim that NLP and Machine Translation (MT) systems process MWUs successfully. This volume provides a general overview of the field with particular reference to Machine Translation and Translation Technology and focuses on languages such as English, Basque, French, Romanian, German, Dutch and Croatian, among others. The chapters of the volume illustrate a variety of topics that address this challenge, such as the use of rule-based approaches, compound splitting techniques, MWU identification methodologies in multilingual applications, and MWU alignment issues.

Spanish/English Contrasts

A Course in Spanish Linguistics

An invaluable text in language and linguistics because it has a unique scope: a one-volume description of the Spanish language and its differences from English, and ranges from pronunciation and grammar to word meaning, language use, and social and dialectical variation. Designed for survey courses in Spanish linguistics with technical concepts explained in context for beginners in the field, Spanish/English Contrasts brings out the ways in which insights into the two languages have evolved as scholars have built on the work and research of others in the field. A bilingual glossary of linguistic terms is provided to facilitate discussion in either language. This second edition is thoroughly updated to incorporate insights and issues that have come to the fore from the explosion of research in the past twenty-five years in all of the areas covered by the book. It includes an expanded bibliography and index, and adds new exercises for student application and class discussion. Its approach remains broadly based however, in order to accommodate a range of areas and data rather than focusing narrowly on one single theory or research area, and it continues to emphasize implications for language teaching, translation, and other practical applications.

Frischer Wind weht in die Anglistik. Neben den traditionellen Disziplinen Sprach- und Literaturwissenschaft stehen gleichberechtigt Kulturwissenschaften, Fachdidaktik und Sprachpraxis. Sprengt das die einheitliche Darstellung des Faches? Nein, denn viele Querverweise vernetzen das Wissen. Sprache, Literatur und Kultur der Britischen Inseln oder der New Englishes werden großzügig gewürdigt. Präzise und praxisnah.

The Acquisition of Spanish

Morphosyntactic Development in Monolingual and Bilingual L1 Acquisition and Adult L2 Acquisition

This is the first book on the acquisition of Spanish that provides a state-of-the-art comprehensive overview of Spanish morphosyntactic development in monolingual and bilingual situations. Its content is organized around key grammatical themes that form the empirical base of research in generative grammar: nominal and verbal inflectional morphology, subject and object pronouns, complex structures involving movement (topicalizations, questions, relative clauses), and aspects of verb meaning that have consequences for syntax. The book argues that Universal Grammar constrains all instances of language acquisition and that there is a fundamental continuity between monolingual, bilingual, child and adult early grammatical systems. While stressing their similarities with respect to linguistic representations and processes, the book also considers important differences between these three acquisition situations with respect to the outcome of acquisition. It is also shown that many linguistic properties of Spanish are acquired earlier than in English and other languages. This book is a must read for those interested in the acquisition of Spanish from different theoretical perspectives as well as those working on the acquisition of other languages in different contexts.

Dante Alighieri: De vulgari eloquentia

Für sein unvollendet gebliebenes sprachphilosophisches Traktat "De vulgari eloquentia" (1303-1304), in dem die italienische Volkssprache auf Grund ihrer Natürlichkeit erstmals über das Lateinische gestellt wird, hat Dante Alighieri (1265-1321) im Gegensatz zu seinem Meisterwerk, der "Divina Commedia", nicht die Volkssprache selbst, sondern die lateinische Sprache gewählt. 1529 ließ Gian Giorgio Trissino eine italienische Übersetzung des bis dahin verschollenen Traktats erscheinen.Der vorliegende Band vereinigt Dantes lateinischen Urtext mit Trissinos Version und stellt diesen beiden Fassungen eine neue deutsche Übersetzung gegenüber, um – besonders für Studierende der Romanistik – die Arbeit mit diesem zentralen Text der Italianistik in Zukunft zu erleichtern. Vorangestellt ist ein einführendes Kapitel über die Prinzipien der Textedition.
