History of Lingustics in Spain by
Call Number: E-Book- Volume I
Publication Date: 1986
This selection of papers is concerned with the history of linguistics in Spain, dealing with the evolution of linguistic ideas from the Middle Ages and the European context of the linguistic debates in Spain to the 20th century, concluding with Malkiel's appraisal of Ramón Menéndez Pidal (1869-1968). The volume includes papers on Antonio Nebrija and Sanctius, probably the best-known grammarians of the Iberian peninsula, but - as the other papers suggest - there is much more to be known about the Spanish linguistic traditions.The papers in this volume were previously published in Historiographia Linguistica XI:1/2 (1984).
