Ignacio Bosque#

Short laudatio by Franz Rainer#

The Mexican linguist José G. Moreno de Alba recently said about Ignacio Bosque that he was « el mejor gramático de la lengua española», the best grammarian of the Spanish language. Bosque has in fact contributed an incredible number of excellent studies on almost any area of Spanish grammar in the form of monographs, scholarly articles, textbooks, as well as two important dictionaries (Diccionario inverso, 1987, Redes, 2004). But his lasting achievement will certainly lie in the fact that he provided the Spanish language community with a comprehensive modern grammar of some 3885 pages covering all varieties of Spanish, which has been approved as the pan-Hispanic academy grammar in 2009. Though for institutional reasons Bosque is only presented as the “coordinator” of the Nueva gramática de la lengua española, he is in fact the author of most of it. This grammar will be judged by future generations as a landmark in the history of Spanish grammar and linguistics. Its present and future impact on research on and teaching of the Spanish language world-wide cannot be overestimated. A first sign of recognition has already come in the form of the Spanish National Research Award (Premio Nacional de Investigación) awarded to Ignacio Bosque in 2010.
