The evolution of Spanish by Thomas A Lathrop( Book )

For a long time American students have needed an introductory Spanish historical grammar specifically written for them; the standard book on the subject, Menendez Pida's Manual de gramatica historica, was written around the turn of this century in Spain, when students were expected to know Latin. Most students of today have no background in Latin since the modern curriculum has placed emphasis elsewhere. In this standard manual, Lathrop offers a detailed preliminary chapter dealing with the basic facts of Classical Latin important to the development of Spanish, as well as a detailed picture of Vulgar Latin--the language of the masses. It was this spoken language which was the origin of Spanish. In the second chapter he explains the evolution of vowels and consonants from Vulgar Latin to Spanish, with numerous examples illustrating each point. In the third chapter, he shows how the various grammatical forms, most particularly nouns, adjectives and verbs, evolved from Vulgar Latin to Spanish, again with many examples of reach section. At the end of the volume there is a useful index of words, a detailed, updated bibliography, a translation of Latin words into English, and a general index

The novella tells the story of the local Catholic priest (Don Manuel) in fictional Valverde de Lucerna, Spain as told through the eyes, Angela, one of the townspeople. Throughout the course of the story Manuel is adored by the people of the town. He is constantly in the service of the townspeople. He refrains from condemning anyone and goes out of his way to help those whom the people have marginalized. They consider him their "Saint". Angela, after a brief stint away for education, returns to the town to live with her mother where she continues to be amazed at Manuel's devotion. Her brother, Lazarus, returns from the New World and is likewise amazed, but is not a believer. When their mother dies, her dying wish is that Lazarus will be converted. After this takes place, Angela learns that neither Manuel or Lazarus believe in an afterlife, but devote themselves to serving the townspeople anyway; Manuel suffers greatly from revealing his unbelief to the point of dying. Lazarus takes over Manuel's duties after Manuel's death and Angela learns Manuel is being considered for beatification
