Item description for El Genio del Idioma / The Language Genius (Spanish Edition) by Álex Grijelmo...

You dont have to rub the magic lamp, you just have to read the word "esniquilli" and the Spanish language genie will appear! Whenever we read a word like "esniquilli", we immediately know that it is not part of the Spanish language because the genie will not recognize it as such. Linguists often refer to their soul as "the language genie," but which are these rules? Where do they come from? What criteria does this genie follow? Understanding the language genie means understanding the structure of our thinking and understanding how we speak.

Description in Spanish: Los lingistas suelen referirse al "genio del idioma" para referirse a su alma. Si leemos la palabra "esniquili", enseguida sabemos que no es de nuestra lengua. Por qu? Porque el genio de nuestro idioma no admitira nunca una palabra as.

Muchos fillogos han empleado esta metfora, pero no hay ningn libro que la haya desarrollado. Se tratara de construir un libro-metfora y tirar de ese hilo.
