    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2009; US$ 135.00

    In this work, the Spanish copulae ser and estar are argued to be aspectual morphemes.

It can therefore be shown that different types of states, just like different types... more...

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2000; US$ 165.00

    This study of Old Spanish and present-day Mexico and New Mexico data develops a grammaticization account of variation in progressive constructions.
