The present study scrutinizes the Spanish morphological variation between masculine and feminine possessive complements used with locative adverbials (e.g. cerca mío / mía ‘close to me’). The feminine -a suffix (e.g. mía) is the innovative variant and has been described by normative grammars as a low-frequency and stigmatized trait. This paper focu...

En la gramaticalizacion del futuro (F) y condicional (C) a partir de la estructura perifrastica [infinitivo + habere] en las lenguas romanicas, aparecen las denominadas formas analiticas (cantar la han) y sinteticas (la cantaran o cantaran- la) cuando se combinan con pronombres atonos. Esta variacion muestra que todavia no se ha alcanzado totalment...

Designing serious games that engage lots of players is still a challenge, especially for domains that introduce complex, specialised, and tedious tasks that are difficult to represent in a game in terms of entertainment. Therefore, researchers have investigated ways to motivate players, including enjoyment. Enjoyment is tied to emotional experience...
Article
Since the colonial expansion of the Spanish and Portuguese empires, many typologically different languages have come into contact with Spanish and Portuguese in a wide range of geographical, historical and sociocultural settings. This special issue brings together various contributions that focus on such postcolonial contact situations and their li...

In this introductory article, we will first illustrate the great morpho-syntactic diversity that exists in the Romance possessive systems from a comparative perspective, and then detail the recent changes that have taken place. After discussing the various nominal patterns, the use of tonic possessives in the adverbial and verbal domain will be exa...

In order to contribute to a better understanding of the correlation between the semantic and syntactic behaviour of the polysemous verb gustar, we trace, from a diatopic perspective, the different interpretations that this verb can have when appearing with a nominative and a prepositional complement [NOM + gusta + de + Noun Phrase]. The data used f...
Chapter
The notion of ‘linguistic cycle’ has long been recognized as being relevant to the description of many processes of language change. This introduction deals with different phenomena of cyclical change, making clear that while grammaticalization is one area where cyclical change can be found, it is not the only one. The chapter provides an overview...

Multilingualism and modern language teaching in the 16th century: the interjection hola as a possible case of language contact in the Colloquia, et dictionariolum In this paper, we explore the semantic-pragmatic functions of the interjection hola in the Dutch, French and Spanish versions of the Colloquia, et dictionariolum , printed in Antwerp, as...

El presente trabajo abarca el estudio de la variación en las construcciones adverbiales locativas, que se manifiesta en la alternancia entre la variante ADVERBIO + preposición de + PRONOMBRE PERSONAL (por ejemplo, encima de mí), y la variante ADVERBIO + PRONOMBRE POSESIVO (por ejemplo, encima mío/a). El objetivo consiste en estudiar el posible efec...
Article
This diatopic study examines the characteristics of the locative adverb constructions that select possessive pronouns as complements in Peninsular Spanish oral corpora. Firstly, the range of locative adverbs that take part in this construction are scrutinised, as well as their frequency of use with respect to that of their counterparts, in which a...

En este trabajo investigamos el aumento de frecuencia textual de los diferentes tipos de clíticos pronominales a lo largo de la historia del español mediante un análisis cuantitativo y cualitativo de un corpus paralelo de traducciones bíblicas. Para ello, se ha realizado un cómputo exhaustivo del número y función de los clíticos pronominales que ap...

In this paper we examine clitic placement in Medieval Spanish (MedSp) and Renaissance Spanish (RenSp) as well as the Person Case Constraint (PCC) in Modern Spanish (ModSp), arguing that a natural explanation for these phenomena can be given once we assume clitics to be the encoding of calcified processing strategies of an earlier freer word order s...

The topic of this paper is the formal modelling of syntactic variation given an incremental processing (parsing/production) perspective. As a case study it investigates the syntactic variation observed in weak pronoun placement in Medieval Spanish. Weak pronouns are shown to precede and/or follow the finite verb depending on their syntactic environ...

Abstract The paper explores parallelisms between Bantu (specifically Otjiherero) and Romance (through Latin and Spanish) with respect to left and right peripheries, and subject and object clitics. The analysis is formulated in Dynamic Syntax (DS, Cann et al. 2005) and centrally involves notions of structural underspecifi- cation. Through providing...

An incremental, parsing oriented model for natural language syntax. Applications ranging from purely morphosyntactic phenomena like clitics all the way to interaction and dialogue modeling
Project
The aim is to articulate a "knowing-how" perspective on language, nesting this within a general cognitivist perspective (eg A. Clark 2016), and exploring the consequences for language evolution.
