Abstract:
Word order variations in Spanish have led scholars to consider it as a language with flexible word order in comparison with languages such as French or English. Attention has been mainly centred on syntactic variations involving the placement of the subject. Today, the widespread assumption is that Spanish is a pragmatically motivated language; consequently, studies have started to focus on real occurring data in order to study the pragmatic factors that intervene in the creation of meaning. The fact that the pragmatic factors are independent of position makes it difficult to use them as indicators to explain word order variations. Further, studying language in context implies that it more complex to single out a specific feature, because every element of the system collaborates in the creation of meaning.
