Abstract

Our paper focuses on the teaching of causal discourse connectors to learners of Spanish as a foreign language (SFL) whose mother tongue is Portuguese. It relies on the project about the pedagogical application of NooJ carried out by the IES_UNR research group since 2015, which mainly follows [11] and [12], and which makes use of [13]. The contrastive analysis in Portuguese is based on [14]. To develop discourse strategies for text comprehension and production, we implemented tags related to discursiveness and causality. Discourse connectors or markers may be understood as “constituents that exceed the limit of units such as the word, the phrase or the sentence” [7]. As cause and consequence concur, they involve the use of causal discourse connectors such as porque, ya que, gracias a, in Spanish, and porque, já que, graças a, in Portuguese (because, since, thanks to). We created dictionaries and grammars including two new features: Connector [C] (to name discourse connectors), and causal [+caus] (to identify causal discourse connectors). These features can be more effective for learners of Spanish, especially the one related to causality, since they refer to more general semantic knowledge.

Fußnoten
1
In this paper, two members of our research group, Ángela Salvarezza e Iván Oliva, have participated in searching digital newspapers in Portuguese to look for news about DNA recognition of buried soldiers in Malvinas.
 
2
We will not deal here with portuñol or portunhol, for it is not easy to define: for some it is a dialect, for others a stage of acquisition. You may consult [4], who offers a more linguistic approach, or [3], who refers to a more literary approach, to mention only a few works.
 
3
Only generalities that apply to Spanish thought of in a broader sense, but not particularly to the Rioplatense variety, are considered.
 
4
Please note that for this grammar we took as a reference the work of [1] about the nucleus verb phrase in French. Greater phrases such as verb phrase <SV> or prepositional phrase <SP> are determined, which contain nucleus phrases inside such as a nucleus adjective phrase <SADJN> or a nucleus noun phrase <SNN>.
