Descrição da editora
Introduccion a la linguistica hispanica. BY HUALDE, JOSE IGNACIO, ANTXON OLARREA, ANNA MARIA ESCOBAR AND CATHERINE E. TRAVIS. NEW YORK: CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, 2010, 2ND ED. 554. HARDBACK $80.00. Hualde, Olarrea, Escobar and Travis (2010) is the second edition of an excellent resource to be used as the main textbook in introductory classes at the undergraduate or graduate levels. It could be used as well as a reference in any library. This new edition presents a more extended analysis of the required areas to be considered as one initiates in the field of Spanish linguistics. Introduccion a la linguistica hispanica has been written with clarity and presents explanations that are brief and precise to facilitate the comprehension of many areas that are cumbersome to understand to anyone without a previous background in linguistics. The textbook has as its main audience the English native speaker, but the material is relevant to anyone interested in the study of the Spanish language and linguistics. For a native Spanish-speaker, Introduccion a la linguistica hispanica will expand his/her knowledge of the complexities of language production and the particular characteristics of his/her language that otherwise cannot be explained when using a prescriptivist approach. The following paragraphs present a general overview of the organization of the textbook, a summary of each one of the eight chapters and an evaluation of the contributions of the text.
