Offering an impressive range of ancillary materials, discussion questions, classroom activities, essay topics and ideas for further research, this extensive guide is a pedagogical treasure for introductory Hispanic linguistics courses. By delineating clear objectives for learning, the authors skillfully integrate aspects of phonology, morphology, syntax and pragmatics in lessons that challenge students to reflect upon the form and function of language from both structural and social perspectives. They pose sophisticated theoretical and philosophical questions about the nature of language with ease and candor, and effectively incorporate views from the Academy, mass media, the sciences and popular culture. Students and instructors alike will find themselves engaged with societal debates around language use in the Spanish-speaking world as they confront the intricacies of language acquisition, variation, change, and speaker identity in these pages.
