Espacos, Olofagos, y Caripicos. Turzismen im frühneuzeitlichen Spanisch

The article deals with the historical development of Turkish-Spanish language contact in the Mediterranean. Initially, informations about the Ottoman Empire reached Spain mainly via Italian sources. There is, however, also a number of texts written by Spanish merchants, travellers and diplomats that contain important firsthand information. On the basis of these historical sources, a selective documentation of early Ottoman-Turkish loanwords in Spanish is compiled. As a result, it becomes clear that the lexicographiy of Turkisms in Spanish is far less advanced than in other languages.

El auge del dequeísmo en el siglo XVIII o la desestabilización del sistema. Historia de una variación lingüística

This paper provides evidence of the early presence of dequeism in the 18th century, and analyzes the possible causes for its apparition. The analysis is based on different corpuses and special attention has been paid to the influence that some specific linguistic and extralinguistic factors may have had in the apparition and expansion of the dequeism. Such factors as the source and type of texts are considered and we also evaluate the importance of some pragmatic/semantic conditioning, as the use of de as an evidentiality marker, the use of non-past tenses, the expression of disagreement, or negative assessment, etc. It also evaluates the effect of some psycholinguistic factors, such as the repetition of some discourse structures, analogies, etc. This analysis shows that these motivations only seem to operate under some specific conditions, since dequeism is found only in texts with an essential communicative function and a minimal stylistic concern. The academic pressure in the 18th century, is likely to have stopped these innovative attempts, which will be marginalized to some specific contexts and became clearly stigmatized variants. Dequeism, which could have emerged as an instance of linguistic change, is then reduced to a mere process resulting from linguistic variation.

The translation into Catalan of marked structures in King Lear

Different languages have different means (or structures) to either foreground or background the informational (thematic-rhematic) import of the constituents involved in their sentences. English and Catalan differ substantially, since these two languages resort to two different types of strategies to encode such pragmatic information. Whereas in English thematic (old) information may be left deaccented inside the clause, in Catalan it must be moved to a peripheral (dislocated) position in the structure. This might trigger the binding of a clitic in the clause to satisfy the requirements of the verb. Hence, in order to maintain the quality of the original text, translators should be aware of the equivalences that marked structures have in the target language so as to avoid the weakening of the quality of the target text. If the choice of marked structures is relevant in the original text, that choice should be reflected in (quality) target texts as well. To approach how marked structures are treated in translations, four strategies (which are either contrastive and/or involve clitic binding in Catalan) will be analysed in a fragment of Shakespeare’s King Lear.

On the Status of Proto-Romance *Cw and Its Fate in Italian

This paper treats the origin of the Italian reflexes of the Proto-Romance string traditionally reconstructed as *Cw (i.e., consonant + labial glide). There are two reflexes, which correlate with the location of the stress relative to the string: gemination and loss of *w (except following velar) if the stress preceded the string (e.g., 1s ténni < *ténwi in the preterit of tenere ‘have’), but loss without gemination if it followed (e.g., 2s tenésti < *tenwésti in preterit of this verb). Stress has therefore been generally accepted as the historical motivation for the difference in reflex. There are, however, exceptions, which, although not numerous, have led some to question the historical relevance of stress. I will argue that the exceptions are only apparent, i.e., they can be explained systemically with reference to non-phonetic factors (e.g., analogy), thus permitting us to maintain stress as a hypothesis of the origin of the reflexes. I will conclude by offering a modification of the stress-related hypothesis which enhances its explanatory potential. In treating the fate of *Cw, I will of necessity also be treating the history of the preterit of verbs like tenere, which had *w as the preterit formant, and which therefore provided most instances of *Cw.
