Wireback, Kenneth J. On the Regularization of Consonant + Consonant Metathesis in the History of Spanish. [Trad. Sobre la Regularización del Consonante + la Metátesis Consonante en la Historia del Español ] 

RESUMEN SOLO DISPONIBLE EN LA SIGUIENTE VERSION: This article investigates four cases of consonant + consonant metathesis in the history of Spanish in order to determine how these metatheses became regular sound changes, in contrast to other adjacent and non-adjacent metatheses that were less regular. Given the impossibility of a synchronic metathesis rule as the source of regularity, I argue that Old Spanish /dn/, /dl/, and /nr/ were consistently restructured to /nd/, /ld/, and /?n/ respectively, via misperception due to adjacency, phonetic similarity, stretched out acoustic cues, and in certain cases the possibility of intermediate blended articulations. Other diachronic metatheses like /bl/ > /lb/ were less regular because they lacked one or more of these factors. Similarly, Judeo- Spanish /?d/ > /d?/ metathesis attained a degree of regularity through phonetic similarity and adjacency, but the absence of stretched out acoustic cues and the impossibility of intermediate articulations led to the survival of unmetathesized sequences.

Gornall, John Invenciones from Tournament to Cancionero: Some Significant Patterns? . [Trad. Invenciones desde los Tornes Hasta Cancionero: ¿Algunos Patrones Importantes?] 

RESUMEN SOLO DISPONIBLE EN INGLES: Many invenciones, recorded at the late fifteenth-century tournaments where they were exhibited, are known to us from two cancioneros, the Cancionero general, 1511 [11CG] and British Library MS Add. 10431 [LB1]. There, in generic sections, they are presented not according to author but as the random products of a tournament. But some significant groupings, both authorial and others, do occur. Although some of these point to re-arrangements made in the course of transmission from tournament to cancionero, others, more interestingly, suggest configurations originating at the events themselves.

Patterson, Craig ¿También de teatro? Aesthetic Propaganda in Ramón del Valle-Inclán’s La guerra carlista. [Trad. ¿También de teatro? Propaganda Estética en La guerra carlista de Ramón del Valle-Inclán ] 

RESUMEN SOLO DISPONIBLE EN INGLES: Criticism has constantly debated the political tendencies of Ramón del Valle-Inclán (1866–1936) and the relationship between these and his chosen aesthetics, and has shown considerable reluctance in acknowledging that Valle-Inclán was a politically committed writer before the Esperpento period, or that he should use works that function autonomously in purely aesthetic terms for propagandistic purposes. His earlier attachment to Carlism is still widely regarded as a flirtation, an aesthetic identification with a lost cause. This is largely because early responses to his works (especially the Sonatas) chose to identify the larger-than-life author with his most celebrated fictional personage, the enigmatic Bradomín, whose response to Carlism is aesthetic and sentimental except — ironically — in the novels of the Carlist War trilogy. In this article, I argue that La guerra carlista (1908–1909) is Carlist propaganda in terms of conception and realisation, chiefly by examining the depiction of several leading characters in the trilogy and analysing the Symbolist tendencies detectable within the three novels, in order to assess how this coheres with Valle-Inclán’s vision of the Carlist claim. I conclude that La guerra carlista represents a unified political and aesthetic treatise in favour of Carlist monarchism, and the closest alignment of his literature with a given political movement or cause.

Torres-Pou, Joan El discurso colonial en las crónicas sobre el Japón de Enrique Gómez CarrilloCentroamérica

RESUMEN SOLO DISPONIBLE EN INGLES: In light of Post-Colonial Criticism, this article studies the Guatemalan writer Enrique Gómez Carrillo’s description of turn-of-the century Japan, with particular reference to his book De Marsella a Tokio, and shows the influence on Gómez Carrillo’s work of previous travel books on Japan and the role played by his assimilation of colonial discourse.

Grau-llevería, Elena Desencuentros en un proyecto nacional: El último juego de Gloria GuardiaCentroamérica

This article analyses the ideological inconsistencies which undermine the ideological tenets about Panama presented by the narrators of El último juego. The analysis of these discrepancies focuses on two levels: the public and the private. The public space is mostly concerned with the Panama Canal. The private space focuses on the relationship of the protagonist with the two women in his life, who symbolize different options for the nation, neither of which is viable, for contrasting reasons. Having analysed these different national alternatives, the article proposes the existence of an implicit narrator which not only removes the canal problem as a national project from its central focus, but implies a revision of social and sexual codes of behaviour by the dominant group within Panamanian society.

Kortazar, Jon Literatura y juego en la obra de Ramón Saizarbitoria

RESUMEN NO DISPONIBLE EN ESPANOL This article provides an overview of new critical approaches to literature and attempts to apply them to modern Basque literature, concentrating on Ramon Saizarbitoria’s series of novels Gorde nazazu lurpean. It begins by examining concepts such as ‘fiction’, ‘games’, ‘reality’, ‘irony’ and ‘possible worlds’, and goes on to assess the presence of these elements in the work of the Basque writer. It reflects on the possibility of expressing reality in literature and the importance Saizarbitoria attaches to human relationships and to psychoanalysis. Finally, it considers Saizarbitoria’s self-reference in the novels discussed.
