Analysis comparing the behavior of lexical loanwords in the language of technology and fashion and beauty in Spanish
Article
The rise of the Internet has fueled a rapid borrowing of English-language computer and Internet related lexical resources into Spanish, at the same time that it has provided an unprecedented opportunity to observe the results of this virtual language contact. The traditional stages of adaptation and integration are occurring simultaneously rather t...
Article
Spanish Word Formation and Lexical Creation examines mechanisms of lexical creation and neologism in Spanish with a focus on the semantic properties of verbalization. This volume brings together papers from the Conference on Word Formation and Lexical Creation (Alicante, March 2010), translated into English and divided into four parts. It contains...
Article
Douglass (1964, 1988) examines the Greek and Roman precursors and early uses of the written accent in Spanish, tracing its development to 1726, when the first Diccionario de Autoridades from the Real Academia Española (RAE) appeared. This system continues to evolve even today, but there is little published research on its development over the last...

Article
Much research establishing phonemic bases for grammatical gender assignment in Spanish nouns relies on straightforward word counts, some of them rather small, and does not examine the characteristics of individual words. No distinction is made between native Spanish words and loanwords, or between terminal letter, terminal phoneme, and terminal mor...
Article
This article discusses reasons for explicit pronunciation instruction, despite the continued neglect of this area in the communicative classroom. ACTFL/NCATE Program Standards for the Preparation of Foreign Language Teachers (2002) and Standards for Foreign Language Learning in the 21st Century (National Standards, 1999) dictate that teachers have...
Article
Absteact.In this study, one group of first-semester Spanish students were encouraged to acquire vocabulary through small- and large-group oral activities plus semantic mapping. Another group participated in similar oral activities, but did not perform semantic mapping. A comparision of the two groups suggests a trend toward the effectiveness of sem...
Article
Research on the mastery of L1 and L2 derivational morphology as a tool for vocabulary acquisition is reviewed, along with empirical studies on learners' knowledge of L2 derivational morphology, and on the use of morphological analysis as a useful tool for aiding L2 vocabulary acquisition. The concepts of breadth and depth of vocabulary knowledge ar...
Article
With the rise of the Internet, English has become a source of borrowing of computer terms in many languages, including Spanish. Many of these borrowings are rapidly making their way into the Spanish language press. A survey of newspapers from eight Latin American countries yielded a total of 231 lexical borrowings of different types, all related to...
Article
Although first language (L1) and second language (L2) research has indicated that the meanings of unknown words can be derived from the contexts in which they occur, research has also found limitations to the value of context. Using data gathered in a classroom experiment on L2 vocabulary acquisition (Frantzen, 1998), the present study sought to de...
