Grammar and Conversion in the Early Iberian Empire

Rodriguez-Velasco, Jesus D.

Grammar is art. Not an art. It is the art among all arts. As Martin Irvine demonstrated in his beautiful book of 1994, this claim is not very new -it is perhaps as old as grammar, and as old as the greek concept of τέχνη. But it is useful to delve into it a little bit more, in order to understand the concrete issue of what did grammar and language teaching mean in Late Medieval Castile and Early Modern Iberian Empire -Spain.
