Formas De Tratamiento: El Voseo En Escuelas Y Liceos De Montveideo ("Use Of Voseo In A Classroom Setting In Montevideo, Uruguay), Irene Kaufmann Cotelo

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

RESUMEN: Este trabajo estudia las formas de tratamiento utilizadas para la segunda persona del singular informal dentro de las aulas escolares y liceales montevideanas. En el pasado se intentaba enfatizar el uso del tuteo estándar (tú tienes) dentro de los centros de enseñanza uruguayos, resaltando su “corrección” frente a las formas voseantes. Por medio de un sondeo de opinión entre docentes de enseñanza primaria y secundaria, pública y privada de Montevideo, se logra dibujar aquí una imagen, según la cual queda en evidencia que, al igual que en la calle, las formas voseantes (vos tenés, tú tenés) son hoy las ...

Spanish Language and Literature

Arguably the most celebrated woman poet of Spain's Generation of 1927, Champourcin went into exile in Mexico at the conclusion of the civil war (1936-1939) with her husband, poet Juan Jose Domenchina.

Her first book, En silencio (1926; In Silence), contains poems clearly influenced by romanticism and modernism. Subsequent poetry collections, such as La voz en el viento (1931; The Voice in the Wind), follow avant-garde tendencies and present a ...

Generation Of 1914 In Spain, Iker González-Allende

Spanish Language and Literature

This group of Spanish writers wrote in the period between modernism and the Generation of 1898 and the 1920s avant-garde tendencies.

"1914" was chosen to label this generation because it marked the outbreak of World War I and because José Ortega y Gasset, the movement's main figure, delivered a talk that year on old and new politics.

Postmodernidad Y Metaficción En Hipótesis (1975), Iker González-Allende

Spanish Language and Literature

En su tercera novela, Guerra Garrido explora las posibilidades de que una máquina produzca una narrativa de ficción. El título implica precisamente la duda de si este tipo de escritura es factible y apunta el carácter experimental y lúdico que encierra la novela.

Los otros cuatro personajes que aparecen en sus páginas adquieren tanta relevancia argumental como el escritor, a pesar de que se convierten en los protagonistas de la ...
