Editorial Reviews

 "This authoritative textbook represents a fresh approach to introducing students to the field of Hispanic linguistics. While it addresses the core linguistic areas of phonetics/phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, and pragmatics, it also includes chapters on the history of the Spanish language, linguistic variation and dialects, and language acquisition, in a broad look at various related areas. The textbook features many activities that encourage students to reflect inductively on linguistic issues and problems, and references various interactive websites and other sources to supplement and enrich the material. Instructors can access the teacher¿s guide, which provides valuable information on the subject matter as well as suggestions for its presentation. The book also suggests areas for further research, lending itself to advanced undergraduate and graduate levels of instruction. Teachers, students and researchers of Hispanic linguistics will find an outstanding trove of well-researched information that promises to transform the way this material is taught." - Professor Dale A. Koike, University of Texas at Austin "Written in an easy-to-read style, the eight chapters of Introducci¿n a la ling¿¿ica hisp¿ca actual: teor¿y pr¿ica give a comprehensive, well-organized and up-to-date view of all areas of Hispanic linguistics, including the less traditional field of first and second language acquisition. The authors address theoretical and practical questions, illustrating the discussion with situations that reflect the everyday use of language. Each chapter includes activities, suggestions for research projects and further reading, a list of key terms and concepts, a specialized bibliography, and a wealth of figures and summary tables that enhance the text and stimulate a deeper study of the Spanish language. This is indeed a masterful introduction, an ideal textbook for courses in this field." - Professor Carmen Silva-Corval¿ "Si imagin¿mos esta Introducci¿n como una gran casa, descubrir¿os en ella m¿ltiples puertas por las que acceder a un universo ling¿¿ico amplio y variado. Los autores son generosos anfitriones que ofrecen al lector recursos para familiarizarse con las formas, las funciones y los usos de la lengua. Este volumen es una introducci¿n a la ling¿¿ica a trav¿del espa¿ol; una obra completa, concisa, actualizada y bien dispuesta para la ense¿anza, cuya claridad y versatilidad animan tanto a la lectura continua, como a la curiosa consulta." -Professor Francisco Moreno-Fern¿ez, Universidad de Alcal¿nd Instituto Cervantes at Harvard University "Cualquier texto de introducci¿n a una ling¿¿ica espec¿ca supone siempre un dif¿l equilibrio entre lo general y lo particular cuya resoluci¿n exige encontrar un discurso expositivo claro, construir progresivamente los contenidos, asegurarse de que los avances te¿ricos en la disciplina y en el conocimiento de la lengua objeto de estudio est¿debidamente reflejados y, por ¿ltimo, organizar tanto la exposici¿n como los ejercicios, tareas y proyectos de modo atractivo y ¿til para estudiantes y profesores. Todos esos objetivos han sido alcanzados en esta Introducci¿n a la ling¿¿ica hisp¿ca. Se consigue en ella, partiendo de cero, una visi¿n panor¿ca de los grandes temas de la ling¿¿ica hisp¿ca no solo, como se hace habitualmente, en los terrenos f¿nico, gramatical y l¿co, sino tambi¿en temas como la evoluci¿n y variaci¿n de la lengua o su aprendizaje y ense¿anza. Ser¿in duda de gran utilidad a quienes la utilicen para comenzar o continuar sus estudios universitarios en ling¿¿ica hisp¿ca." - Professor Guillermo Rojo, Universidad de Santiago de Compostela and Real Academia Espa¿ola
