Ideas linguisticas de Bernardo de Aldrete (The Linguistic Ideas of Bernardo de Aldrete).
Molina Redondo, Jose Andres de
Revista de Filologia Espanola, v51 n1-4 p183-207 1968
In 1602, Bernardo Jose de Aldrete wrote a book on Spanish linguistics entitled "Del origen de la lengua castellana o romance que hoy se usa en Espana" (The Origin of Castilian Presently Spoken in Spain") in which he explains and defends Castilian against the purist preference for Latin. This article reviews and evaluates Aldrete's linguistic ideas from a modern point of view. The author notes that Aldrete was devoid of any methodology and instead offered isolated descriptions of language as a vehicle of communication. An attempt is made to coordinate the linguistic ideas of the past and to show the grammatical, lexical, and phonetical changes. (DS)
