Tate, Julee – Hispania, 2019
This essay seeks to situate Eugenio Aguirre's novel, "Isabel Moctezuma," in the ongoing intertextual debate over the place of la Malinche in Mexican history and consciousness. As the title of the novel suggests, the protagonist is not Malinche, but rather another indigenous woman, the first-born daughter of the Aztec emperor, Moctezuma…

Shepin, Laura Graebner – Hispania, 2019
The incorporation of literary texts in advanced beginner and intermediate level language classrooms (high school Spanish, years 2-4; university Spanish, semesters 2-4) can seem intimidating. The thoughtful exploration of literary texts takes time away from other content, specifically grammar and vocabulary, which often seem more straightforward to…

Waltermire, Mark; Valtierrez, Mayra – Hispania, 2019
The use of English-origin spontaneous loanwords (e.g., "la babysitter," "el counter," etc.) in otherwise Spanish discourse is criticized by many as a strategy that bilinguals use to compensate for a lack of lexical knowledge in Spanish. The purpose of the current research is to examine the question of lexical proficiency as a…

Brougham, Rose Marie – Hispania, 2019
A grief-stricken daughter calls out to her deceased mother asking if she can see her--"Si me puedes mirar"--and thus recognize her pain. This title appears in Olga Orozco's "Los juegos peligrosos" (1962), an elegy in which a poetic voice (in this case a daughter) laments the loss of her mother, the woman who recognized and…

Gudmestad, Aarnes; Clay, Rebecca – Hispania, 2019
This study examines the variable occurrence of preposition duplication in contexts of coordination in Spanish (e.g., "Fui con mi madre y (con) mi padre"). We build on previous research on this variable morphosyntactic phenomenon (namely, prepositions in contexts of coordination) by expanding the type of data and the independent variables…

Daidone, Danielle – Hispania, 2019
This study compares Spanish instructors' use of preterite and imperfect in the foreign language classroom to the distribution of these forms in large-scale corpora, which represent the input learners would potentially receive in a naturalistic learning context. Twenty-four 50-minute class sessions were recorded, and all tokens of preterite and…

Lee, James F. – Hispania, 2019
The present study compared the performance of two groups of second language learners processing three linguistic structures in Spanish. The linguistic targets were passives, object pronouns in O[subscript pro]VS sentences, and gender-cued null subjects in subordinate clauses. The primary differences between the two groups were language experience…

Shelton, Michael; Gerfen, Chip; Palma, Nicolás Gutiérrez – Hispania, 2019
The current study presents the delayed naming task as an effective tool for testing the robustness of phonotactic constraints. A delayed naming task was employed to test for quantity sensitivity among nonwords in Spanish. Results reveal a robust effect of stress modulation by syllable weight as evidenced by differential rates of error between…

Sloan, Cynthia A. – Hispania, 2019
Concurrent enrollment access is expanding across the country, policies and practices are evolving, and data-driven studies examining every measurable element are being undertaken, yet the role of the relationships among concurrent enrollment partners and participants is too often just mentioned in passing. This case study of a concurrent…

Simonsen, Russell – Hispania, 2019
In L2 (second language) pedagogy, texts are commonly distinguished based on whether language instruction was a consideration in their creation. Texts that are not created for L2 instruction, or "authentic texts," have been thought to represent the target language in an accurate and reliable way (Zyzik and Polio 2017). Conversely, texts…

Mitchell, Claire – Hispania, 2018
While culture has become an increasingly central component of foreign language learning (Garrett-Rucks 2016), the ongoing debate regarding how to implement in-depth cultural instruction inside the foreign language classroom continues, especially at the introductory level (del Valle 2014; Mitchell 2016). Adopting a qualitative approach, the present…

The preverbal double negation construction (i.e., yo "tampoco no" voy a la fiesta hoy) is often cited as a characteristic of Basque Spanish, although its use is undocumented in linguistic studies. The present research aims to fill this void in the literature by analyzing and contrasting the results of two studies on preverbal double…

In seeking to both confirm previous conclusions and expand the literature of the field with a different group of participants, McNulty (2012) was (partially) replicated. Three instructional interventions were designed to ascertain which activity type was responsible for learner gains. One treatment group (R) included referential-only practice…
