David Eddington


in contrast to such a lot monographs on Spanish phonology and morphology that method those themes from a structuralist or generativist framework, this quantity is written from a much less conventional standpoint. extra particularly, it emphasizes quantitative proof from assets similar to usage-based reports, psycholinguistic experiments, corpus info, and desktop simulations. Arguments are awarded to illustrate that some of these proof are the most important for developing theories of language that relate to the mental mechanisms all in favour of generating and comprehending speech, not like theories approximately summary linguistic constitution. a number of themes is roofed together with morphological parsing, nominalization, pressure, syllable constitution, diphthongization, gender, morphophonemic alternations, and epenthesis. An appendix is incorporated that serves as a primer on quantitative linguistic examine.
