Description:

La Escuela de Columbia ofrece una concepción radicalmente funcional del lenguaje, considerado como un sistema semiótico cuya estructura está dada tanto por su función comunicativa como por las características de sus usuarios humanos. Los análisis gramaticales buscan explicar la distribución de las señales lingüísticas en términos de la interacción de su significado lingüístico con factores pragmáticos y funcionales tales como la inferencia, la facilidad de procesamiento y la iconicidad. Las señales con significado pueden ser raíces léxicas, afijos gramaticales y configuraciones de orden sintáctico. No se parte de la presunción de que las emisiones lingüísticas constituyan la manifestación de oraciones o categorías oracionales. Los análisis fonológicos explican la distribución sintagmática y paradigmática de las unidades fonológicas dentro de las señales, también sobre la base de la función comunicativa y las características fisiológicas y psicológicas del ser humano.

Área temática:Análisis del discurso, Español como lengua extranjera (ELE), Español como segunda lengua (EL2), Fonología, Lingüística cognitiva, Morfología, Otras especialidades, Pragmática, Semántica, Sintaxis, Teorías lingüísticas
