[EN] Within the Lexical Constructional Model (LCM), a lexical template (LT) is a meta-entry that codifies the relevant syntactic, semantic, and pragmatic or register features of a predicate. A LT is one of the core elements in the LCM, since the other facets of meaning construction considered by this proposal (cf. traditional implicature, illocutionary meaning and discourse coherence) take templates as their starting point. Therefore, the aim of this paper is to establish the protocol for the creation of such templates, that is, we detail which elements make up the syntactic, semantic and pragmatic/register modules of each LT. Besides, two...
[EN] This article explores a type of co-occurrence pattern which cannot be adequately described by existing models of collocation, and for which combinatory dictionaries have yet failed to provide sufficient information. The phenomenon of "oblique inter-collocation", as I propose to call it, is characterised by a concatenation of syntagmatic preferences which partially contravenes the habitual grammatical order of semantic selection. In particular, I will examine some of the effects which the verb cause exerts on the distribution of attributive adjectives in the context of specific noun classes. The procedure for detecting and describing patterns of oblique inter-collocation is illustrated by...

[EN] Taking the Position of Antecedent Hypothesis, Carminati (2002), and the works of Alonso-Ovalle et al. (2002) regarding the Spanish language as a starting point, this paper investigates third person personal pronouns, null and overt, in non-native discourse. Specifically, we examine whether pronouns show preferences in their selection of antecedents, if they perform a particular discursive function and to what extent language transfer can explain the similarities and differences between native and non-native discourse. We work with narrative oral and written texts produced semi-spontaneously by two experimental groups: adolescent bilingual Spanish-Dariya (Moroccan Arabic) and L2 Spanish learners with L1 Dariya....

[EN] This article aims at assessing the productivity of type of the derivational paradigms of Old English strong verbs, with which it contributes to the field of study of Old English word-formation. As a general conclusion, this analysis supports Hinderling's (1967) and Seebold's (1970) claim that the strong verb has to be the starting point of any description of word-formation in the Germanic languages. Other conclusions of the analysis include: (i) lexical productivity in Old English is due to affixation more often than compounding, the number of prefixal derivatives being slightly higher than the one of suffixal derivatives; (ii) the...

[EN] The aim of this article is to explain the lexical and high-level syntactic operations comprising the Old English suffixes -a, -e, -o and -u. Previous research has dealt with these suffixes, which constitute an area of overlapping between inflection and derivation, in terms of inflection, zero derivation or continuity between inflection and derivation. The position adopted in this article is that these affixes are fully derivational, although interesting points of convergence with inflection arise that deserve discussion. In this respect, a fundamental difference is made between explicit and implicit morphological relations. Such relations are considered in the derivational and...

[EN] This paper outlines the participatory roles of narrators and interviewers in the process of unfolding personal stories. Fifteen secondary school students of Hispanic-Australian background enrolled in intermediate Spanish classes in Melbourne (Australia) were asked to talk about a series of topics allowing them to explore and develop personal stories. For the purpose of providing a comprehensive corpus this manuscript focuses on the 11 personal stories that emerged in Spanish and English around the topic of 'the worst holiday'. The results show that narratives are not initially volunteered by students, being prefaced by an initial denial of negative experience. Nevertheless,...

[EN] The present paper focuses on the description of illocutionary constructions at level 3 of the Lexical Constructional Model (Ruiz de Mendoza & Mairal, 2007, 2008; Mairal & Ruiz de Mendoza, 2008, 2009). Level 3 illocutionary constructions will be shown as providing structure in terms of the interplay between construal operations and general social conventions. We will present an inventory of realizational procedures that give linguistic form to requests and differ in their potential to instantiate the features that characterize this illocutionary type. It is our aim to show that the realization of requests is based on the use of...
