En torno a ‘haber’

Construcciones, usos y variación desde el latín hasta la actualidad

Series:

Edited By Carlota de Benito Moreno and Álvaro S. Octavio de Toledo y Huerta

Este volumen constituye la primera monografía que aborda el haz entero de construcciones en las que, a lo largo de la historia, ha participado el auxiliar más conocido del español, HABERE > haber. Catorce especialistas de universidades europeas y americanas trazan, desde muy diversas ópticas teóricas (lingüística de área, gramática formal, gramática de construcciones, sociolingüística, dialectología o gramaticalización), una perspectiva de conjunto, exhaustiva en los detalles y novedosa en sus hipótesis, sobre los distintos caminos que históricamente ha emprendido el verbo ‘haber’ y hoy caracterizan su comportamiento en español (y otras lenguas románicas aquí abordadas: catalán, francés, portugués...), adentrándose igualmente en aspectos generales de la variación y el cambio morfosintácticos.

Perfects in Contact on the Iberian Peninsula: Ibero-Romance, Arabic, and the Charlemagne Sprachbund

Extract



In recent studies on the distribution of the periphrastic perfect (Eng. I have eaten, Span. he comido) on the Iberian Peninsula and in Europe in general, a new emphasis on the interactive role of geographical and sociohistorical factors has emerged. This scholarly trend is perhaps best exemplified by the comprehensive dissertation of Javier Rodríguez Molina (2010), who assembles chronologically- and geographically-stratified data, both literary and non-literary, in order to trace the diffusion of the category across space and time. What Rodríguez Molina discovers is that the perfects of the eastern regions of the Iberian Peninsula were the first to undergo grammaticalization and that Frankish influence from across the Pyrenees may have played a significant role in this development. In the present article, I provide support for and expand upon Rodríguez Molina’s findings, but take a step beyond his claims in asserting not only that the role of the Franks was essential in providing a model for the development of the periphrastic perfects in the east, but also that Arabic may have played a role in the constrained use of the perfects in the western region.
