Editorial Reviews


En este libro se describe la inmensa riqueza de la variedad de ""lenguas espanolas"" que se hablan desde la frontera de EE.UU.-Canada hasta la Antartida. En la primera parte presenta un analisis lingüistico del espanol de America y lo situa en un extenso contexto. El autor examina la fonologia y morfologia de la lengua, su sintaxis, la variacion lexica y la diferenciacion social, sus contactos pasados y presentes con otras lenguas y explora los factores sociohistoricos que han afectado a los dialectos americanos. Proporciona detalles acerca de las influencias africanas y nativo-americanas de lengua y poblacion y las contribuciones del espanol peninsular. En la segunda parte da un detallado informe del espanol de America en cada pais, con sus claves historicas, detalles de pronunciacion, morfosintaxis y lexico. --Los editores

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Rhiannon on December 7, 2012
Format: Paperback
Dr Lipski's "El Espanol de America" is very well written and a wealth of information on the evolution of Spanish in the "New World".
I highly recommend this book. The information and history of Spanish in the Americas is clear and understandable. What I enjoy most is that Dr. Lipski has an easy flowing style of writing.
Even though Spanish is my second language I find the written presentation easy to read and easy to digest. For native Spanish speakers, this book will give you an excellent background of how Spanish eveolved in the Americas. For students of Spanish, this book is a treasure chest of information on the language many of us have come to use as a second mother tounge. "El Espanol de America" is also a very good way to practice Spanish, both in reading and comprehension.
