Abstract

While some studies have discussed the importance of verbs of motion in the earliest stages of the Spanish language, there are few that have devoted a research monograph to the verb andar. The purpose of this article is to highlight the most important features of this linguistic unit in the 13th century, a key stage in the development process of the written language in Romance. By analyzing the existing semantic constraints on the arguments of andar's lexical selection, a classification of the uses of this verb has been established showing the advantages of the combinatorial approach in the diachronical and historical study of the lexicon.
