Eguren, Luis y Cristina Sánchez López 2021 El cuantificador complejo del español algún que otroRevue Romane 56:2, pp. 327–352 | Article
En este trabajo analizamos la estructura interna y las propiedades semánticas del cuantificador complejo inespecífico del español algún que otro. Sostenemos que el que de algún que otro y sus variantes (algunos que otros, uno que otro, unos que otros) es una conjunción coordinante disyuntiva con… read more
Romance exclamative sentences introduced by the conjunctions que (Spanish, French, Portuguese) and che (Italian) ‘that’ and the Romanian particle să plus a subjunctive verb can receive an evaluative meaning and express the speaker’s displeasure or discontent about the propositional content. This… read more
Sánchez López, Cristina 2017 Mirativity in Spanish: The case of the particle mira The Linguistic Expression of Mirativity, Celle, Agnès and Anastasios Tsangalidis (eds.), pp. 489–514 | Article

Sánchez López, Cristina 2016 Person features and functional heads: Evidence from an exceptional optative sentence in Ibero-RomanceRomance Languages and Linguistic Theory 10: Selected papers from 'Going Romance' 28, Lisbon, Carrilho, Ernestina, Alexandra Fiéis, Maria Lobo and Sandra Pereira (eds.), pp. 259–278 | Article

The construction <muy de + infinitive> is interpreted as a gradable individuallevel predicate (IL-predicate), compatible with the copula ser but not with the copula estar. This supports the idea that the ser and estar distinction is a particular manifestation of Carlson’s (1977) distinction between… read more

This paper provides empirical support to the hypothesis that habitual readings and dispositional/capacitative readings are different kinds of generic statements, generated by different operators: an aspectual operator HABASP is responsible for the habitual reading and a like modal dispositional… read more
Sánchez López, Cristina 2014 Chapter 6. The left periphery of Spanish comparative correlativesLeft Sentence Peripheries in Spanish: Diachronic, Variationist and Comparative Perspectives, Dufter, Andreas and Álvaro S. Octavio de Toledo y Huerta (eds.), pp. 155–184 | Chapter
Spanish correlatives are argued to involve a predication relation articulated upon a null predicator head, both in correlatives with tanto... cuanto... ‘as... as...’ and in comparative correlatives with cuanto más/menos... (tanto) más/menos... ‘the more/less... the more/less ...’ . The predication… read more
