Abstract:

"Introducción a la historia de la lengua española" is a comprehensive 
introduction to the internal and external history of the Spanish language from 
its Indo-European ancestry to the present-day language of over 400 million 
people. The authors examine the phonological, morphological, syntactic, 
semantic, and lexical changes that characterize the evolution of Spanish 
from its Latin origins. But Spanish has not evolved in isolation in its spread 
across Spain and to Africa, the Americas, Asia, and islands of the Pacific 
Ocean. The foreign, sociological, and political influences that contribute to 
the uniqueness, diversity, and unity of a world language are essential aspects 
of the study of its history.

The focus of this book is modern Spanish. The authors address such 
fundamental questions as: Where does Spanish come from? How did it 
become the language we know today? How is it related genetically and 
culturally to other Romance and non-Romance languages? What are the 
effects of bilingualism in areas where Spanish coexists with other languages? 

"Introducción a la historia de la lengua española" includes numerous 
exercises, a section of study questions at the end of each chapter, and an 
extensive bibliography. The second edition is updated and greatly expanded 
in scope and depth, yet it carefully maintains the structure and pedagogical 
approach of the first edition for use with students who have no prior 
background in linguistics. In advanced and graduate-level courses, the 
syllabus can incorporate additional assignments and sections, including the 
optional "Temas y datos adicionales" that accompany each chapter.
