Perpiñán, Silvia and Rafael Marín 2021 Chapter 10. Aspect in the acquisition of the Spanish locative paradigm by Italian L2 learnersRomance Languages and Linguistic Theory 2018: Selected papers from 'Going Romance' 32, Utrecht, Baauw, Sergio, Frank Drijkoningen and Luisa Meroni (eds.), pp. 191–204 | Chapter
The present study investigates the development of the expression of the locative paradigm in the L2 Spanish of Italian-speaking learners. We investigate (i) whether the developmental stages proposed for English-speaking learners (VanPatten 1987; Perpiñán, Marín & Moreno Villamar 2020) hold for… read more
Fábregas, Antonio and Rafael Marín 2020 Chapter 4. Initiators, states and passives in Spanish psych verbsBeyond Emotions in Language: Psychological verbs at the interfaces, Rozwadowska, Bożena and Anna Bondaruk (eds.), pp. 113–140 | Chapter
The goal here is twofold: the first one is to point out the existence of at least two classes of Object Experiencer psychological verbs (henceforth, OEPV) in Spanish with respect to their passive behavior, casting doubt on Landau (2010), who proposes that passivization of OEPVs correlates with the… read more
Fábregas, Antonio and Rafael Marín 2018 Spanish adjectives are PathPsRomance Languages and Linguistic Theory 13: Selected papers from ‘Going Romance’ 29, Nijmegen, Berns, Janine, Haike Jacobs and Dominique Nouveau (eds.), pp. 111–126 | Chapter
The goal of this contribution is to explore the hypothesis that not all languages that have a lexical open class of adjectives project them syntactically as the same kind of object. Specifically, we will argue that Spanish adjectives syntactically project their scales as PathPs, while English… read more
Marín, Rafael and Antonio Fábregas 2018 Spanish estarse is not only agentive, but also inchoativeRomance Languages and Linguistic Theory 13: Selected papers from ‘Going Romance’ 29, Nijmegen, Berns, Janine, Haike Jacobs and Dominique Nouveau (eds.), pp. 209–224 | Chapter
This article explores the properties of constructions involving the stage level copula estar with the pronominal form se, which has been argued to encode an agentive component lacking from the non se-marked form. While several previous studies have argued that estarse constructions involve… read more
Arche, María J., Antonio Fábregas and Rafael Marín 2017 Chapter 2. Towards a unified treatment of Spanish copulasRomance Languages and Linguistic Theory 11: Selected papers from the 44th Linguistic Symposium on Romance Languages (LSRL), London, Ontario, Perpiñán, Silvia, David Heap, Itziri Moreno-Villamar and Adriana Soto-Corominas (eds.), pp. 33–52 | Chapter
This paper sets the basis for a uniform account of the alternation between the two Spanish copulas (ser and estar) in adjectival and passive clauses. While the copular contrast has been attributed to the different properties of adjectives (e.g. individual vs. stage level) and to an eventive vs.… read more
In this paper, we examine the components, the structure and the formation process of derived categories, by analyzing the properties of nouns derived from adjectives. We will discuss the event structure underlying them and argue that, although it is commonly assumed that deadjectival nouns denote… read more
Marco, Cristina and Rafael Marín 2015 Origins and development of adjectival passives in Spanish: a corpus studyNew Perspectives on the Study of Ser and Estar, Pérez-Jiménez, Isabel, Manuel Leonetti and Silvia Gumiel-Molina (eds.), pp. 239–266 | Article
To date, it has generally been assumed that most contemporary uses of Spanish estar ‘be.loc’ arose some time after the use of ser ‘be’, and that the former eventually took over most uses of the latter. Previous analyses of diachronic change in estar claim that the usage of this verb became… read more
Fábregas, Antonio and Rafael Marín 2012 State nouns are Kimian statesRomance Languages and Linguistic Theory 2010: Selected papers from 'Going Romance' Leiden 2010, Franco, Irene, Sara Lusini and Andrés Saab (eds.), pp. 41–64 | Article
The study of states in the verbal domain has recently been enriched with the distinction between K-states and D-states (Maienborn 2005; Rothmayr 2009). This new line of research has not been extended to state denoting nouns, which have been in general much less studied than those nouns denoting… read more
Marín, Rafael 2010 Spanish adjectives within boundsAdjectives: Formal analyses in syntax and semantics, Cabredo Hofherr, Patricia and Ora Matushansky (eds.), pp. 307–332 | Article
The present paper reexamines the relationship between the two Spanish copulas ser “be” and estar “be.locative” and the i-level/s-level contrast. It is shown that the compatibility with the copulas does not yield an adequate classification of adjectives as i-level or s-level, if this distinction is… read more
