This volume contributes a wider approach to word formation processes and sheds light on some unsolved issues. While the formal relationships established between the different constituents of a complex word have been analyzed in great depth, the semantic links have received little dedication. In order to complete the analysis, it is necessary to pay attention to the semantic properties associated to verbalization. The main purpose of the book is to integrate both the semantic proposals and the formal perspectives concerning word formation. This theoretical aim becomes the framework to study several mechanisms of lexical creation and neologisms. Furthermore, word formation is presented as a new source for Applied Linguistics. Although the volume uses Spanish as a starting point, it means to delimit formation patterns which may also be productive in other languages. This book is sure to become an important reference in the controversial field of word formation.

Essays by a modern Jesuit martyr challenge the way that theology should be done and the gospel should be lived. Ignacio Ellacur a, a Spanish Jesuit theologian, philosopher, and rector of the University of Central America in San Salvador, was one of the key intellectual authors of liberation theology. On November 16, 1989 he and other members of the Jesuit community of the university were massacred by Salvadoran army troops. This volume offers twelve important essays by Ellacur a, at last providing English-speaking readers with a comprehensive introduction to his theological thought. Traditional topics such as Christology, ecclesiology, theological method, and spirituality are interwoven with reflections on colonialism, liberation, religion and politics, the philosophy of Xavier Zubiri, and the legacy of Archbishop Oscar Romero in a volume that not only chronicles the thought of one of the most fertile minds of the last century, but challenges the way theology should be carried out for the century to come.

Father Ignacio Ellacura, S.J., president of the University of Central America, leading Latin American philosopher, and liberation theologian, was assassinated with five Jesuit companions and two women on November 16, 1989. Love That Produces Hope brings together leading authorities on key aspects of Ellacura?s thought. The book introduces readers to the groundbreaking life and thought of Ignacio Ellacura. His biography and writings embody late twentieth-century transformations and tensions that reshaped the life of the Catholic Church among the ?crucified peoples? of Central America. Love That Produces Hope evaluates the significance of Ellacura?s work, particularly his impact on theology, philosophy, and education. Ellacura found hope in his faith that God?s grace sustains the tenacious struggle of millions of men, women, and children to nurture those they love in the face of poverty and an uncertain future.?This is a rich collection of essays . . . Each author brings his or her valuable insights to the discussion of Ignacio Ellacura?s philosophical and theological work.? Signs of the Times in the Americas?This significant work serves as an initial introduction for the English-speaking world to liberation theology?s early martyr. Comprehensive, balanced and challenging. The editors, Lasalle-Klein and Burke complete the title by appending an exhaustive bibliography of Ellacura?s publications. This title is recommended for theological collections.? Catholic Library World?As the inaugural holder of the Ignadcio Ellacura Chair in Catholic Social Thought, I am thrilled to read Love That Produces Hope. At long last, the Jesuit martyr of El Salvador's philosophical and theological thought is now available to English-speaking readers. Robert Lassalle-Klein and Kevin Burke are to be congratulated for having assembled the best interpreters to help us understand Ellacura's life, work, and thought. Their essays on the sources and reception of Ellacura's thought are uniformly informative, insightful, and challenging. The bibliography is an indispensable resource for future studies. I strongly recommend the book for any course on Latin American liberation theology." Dr. Peter C. Phan Georgetown University Washington, D.C.

This book is the first comprehensive analysis of the thought of Ignacio Ellacuría, the Jesuit philosopher-theologian martyred for his work on behalf of Latin America's oppressed peoples. While serving as president of the Jesuit-run University of Central America in the midst of El Salvador's brutal civil war, Ellacuría was also a prolific writer. His advocacy on behalf of the country's persecuted majority provoked the enmity of the Salvadoran political establishment. On November 16, 1989, members of the Salvadoran military entered the university's campus and murdered Ellacuría, along with five other Jesuit priests and two women. Kevin F. Burke, SJ, shows why Ellacuría is significant not only as a martyr but also as a theologian. Ellacuría effectively integrated philosophy, history, anthropology, and sociopolitical analysis into his theological reflections on salvation, spirituality, and the church to create an original contribution to liberation theology. Ellacuría's writings directly address one of the most vexing issues in theology today: can theologians account for the demands arising from both the particularity of their various social-historical situations and also the universal claims of Christian revelation? Burke explains how Ellacuría bases theology in a philosophy of historical reality—the "ground beneath the cross"—and interprets the suffering of "the crucified peoples" in the light of Jesus' crucifixion. Ellacuría thus inserts the theological realities of salvation and transcendence squarely within the course of human events, and he connects these to the Christian mandate to "take the crucified peoples down from their crosses." Placing Ellacuría's thought in the context of historical trends within the Roman Catholic Church, particularly Vatican II and the rise of liberation theology in Latin America, Burke argues that Ellacuría makes a distinctive contribution to contemporary Catholic theology.
