Portuguese and Spanish are intimately related languages, especially in the domain of address, because the crucial moments in the diachrony of address happened in shared political and geographic contexts. The volume Address in Portuguese and Spanish. Studies in Diachrony and Diachronic Reconstruction edited by Martin Hummel and Célia dos Santos Lopes provides the first systematic comparative approach to the history of forms of address in Portuguese and Spanish. For this purpose, the volume joins the most relevant authors on this topic. It will thus be a landmark for further research. The contrastive focus on Portuguese and Spanish naturally provides new insights. To give one example, empirical data show that the puzzling late spread of Sp. usted and Pt. você all over America can be explained for both languages by the role of the political and military colonial administration. From the methodological point of view, the volume is innovative insofar as it links traditional downstream diachrony with upstream diachronic reconstruction based on synchronic variation. The volume includes theoretical reflections as well as fine-grained empirical studies.
