The Spanish language
Antonia Moreira-Rodríguez has worked and continues to work on areas of Spanish grammar. She is co-author with John Butt of a book called “Se” de Matización & The Semantics of Spanish Pronominal Verbs. She is also interested in language methodology and has written several student undergraduate language manuals that she has used with her students. One of them is called Language in Context: Lessons in Advanced Spanish. She is currently working on a project that comprises a series of articles of Comparative Syntax of Spanish and English. The first one entitled ‘The book on the table, the Man in the Moon: Post-modification of Nouns by Preposition + Noun in English and Castilian’ was published in 2006 by the Bulletin of Spanish Studies in the Festschrift in honour of John Butt. She is at present working on Spanish passive sentences in English and in Spanish. She has also done work on translation.
At King’s College London Antonia Moreira teaches Spanish grammar to all undergraduate students, and specialist courses on Descriptive and Applied Linguistics. She also offers guided modules in Applied Linguistics at MA level.
