Criollismo Femenino Y Mestizaje En Mah Rap De Malín D’Echevers, Claudia García Jan 2013

Criollismo Femenino Y Mestizaje En Mah Rap De Malín D’Echevers, Claudia García

Foreign Languages and Literature Faculty Publications

Este ensayo propone una lectura de Mah Rap (1946) de la guatemalteca Malín D’Echevers, que articula l novela con la teosofía, el regeneracionismo y el feminismo moderado de la época, mostrando cómo la autora constituye una versión femenina del criollismo. A partir del cruce de este género con elementos de la novela sentimental y la hist6rica, y recurriendo a elementos autobiograficos que determinan una cercanía personal o familiar con el material histórico así como una simpatía interior con el mundo indígena plasmados en la novela, D’Echevers se desvía de los tópicos del criollismo masculino e inscribe la progresiva ...

Observaciones Sobre El Estado Del Sonido Fricativo Palatal Sordo En El Español Salvadoreño., Alexander Quintanilla Jan 2013

Observaciones Sobre El Estado Del Sonido Fricativo Palatal Sordo En El Español Salvadoreño., Alexander Quintanilla

Scholarship and Professional Work - LAS

In this work I discuss the current situation in the Spanish of El Salvador of the voiceless fricative palatal sound. The presence of this sound in Pipil, an orginal language already spoken in El Salvador before the Spaniards arrived, favored its maintenance in Salvadoran Spanish. Since Pipil is a language in extinction, some authors believe that this sound is also disappearing in Salvadoran Spanish. However, Pipil is not the only language with this sound that influences Salvadoran Spanish. Thus, we examine the linguistic distribution of this sound in El Salvador, the possible reasons of its maintenance and its implications for ...


An Analysis Of Sempre, Mesmo And Bem:Brazilian Portuguese Word Order As Applied To Efl Instruction, Katherine Christoffersen Jan 2013

An Analysis Of Sempre, Mesmo And Bem:Brazilian Portuguese Word Order As Applied To Efl Instruction, Katherine Christoffersen

Writing and Language Studies Faculty Publications and Presentations

The aim of this paper is to present a contrastive analysis of three high frequency words, sempre ‘always’, mesmo ‘even/really’, and bem ‘well’, in order to inform the instruction of Brazilian Portuguese speakers in the English as a Foreign Language (EFL) classroom. This work is largely inspired by Ambar, (2008) who compares these same three adverbs’ semantic and syntactic expression in European and Brazilian Portuguese. A multifactorial approach (Costa, 2004) to the analysis of these English/Brazilian Portuguese words demonstrates how the syntax (word order) and semantics (meaning) are inextricably linked and interdependent. While this paper focuses on adverbs ...
