Value–priced and now delivered completely digitally on LingroHub, the course provides a systematic overview of key areas of the field, including the sound system, forms of words, syntactic patterns, the development of the language, and regional, social, and contextual variation. 

Written entirely in Spanish from the viewpoint of contemporary descriptive linguistics, it employs a flexible theoretical approach that incorporates trends from different schools of linguistics as well as the most recently published research.
