  • La anarquia del lenguaje en la America espanola [two volumes, complete] by Rubio, Dario
    Rubio, Dario
    La anarquia del lenguaje en la America espanola [two volumes, complete]

    First Edition

    Mexico: (Confederacion Regional Obrera Mexicana), 1925. 459, 455 pages, including an index to sayings and proverbs in the text and a 13-page dictionary of criminal slang. Rubio's major work, a dictionary of words in Mexican and Latin American Spanish that diverge from the classic Castillian definitions. The author, a member of the Academia Mexicana de la Lengua, offers corrections to the major Spanish dictionaries, which offer incomplete or errant explanations of Americanisms.

    Mexico: (Confederacion Regional Obrera Mexicana), 1925. 459, 455 pages, including an index to sayings and proverbs in the text and a 13-page dictionary of criminal slang. Rubio's major work, a dictionary of words in Mexican and Latin American Spanish that diverge from the classic Castillian definitions. The author, a member of the Academia Mexicana de la Lengua, offers corrections to the major Spanish dictionaries, which offer incomplete or errant explanations of Americanisms. The title of the book is curious. The "anarchy" of the title is metaphorical, apparently referring to the wide range of meanings given to some words in the Americas--Rubio devotes nearly six pages to Chingar. Yet the book was sponsored by a mainstream organization of labor unions with an explicitly anti-Anarchist stance. A widely cited work, with extensive holdings in libraries (OCLC records more than 100 copies), but rather uncommon on the market. ISBN: 281AIB1038799.
