Los Ñáñigos

Los angeles llegada a tierras americanas de mano de obra esclava, procedente del África, constituye uno de los momentos de mayor complejidad en el desarrollo económico-social del Continente americano.
Estas «piezas de ébano» no solo significaron el sostenimiento del régimen esclavista, fueron además elemento importantísimo de nuestra fisonomía cultural. Procedentes de Nigeria del Sur y de su vecino Camerún, los carabalíes traerían de su patria ancestral un primitivo y complejo fenómeno cultural, único de su tipo en arraigar en tierras del Nuevo Mundo, el ñañiguismo, compuesto por un numeroso grupo de sociedades secretas vulgarizadas con el nombre de Abakuá.
En Los ñañigos se describe con acierto esta manifestación de l. a. cultura mestiza cubana. El coherente manejo de los angeles información obtenida arroja nuevas luces en l. a. comprensión del proceso formativo de l. a. nación y nacionalidad cubanas; contribuye a l. a. desmitificación de las interpretaciones burguesas de carácter racista al valorar con justeza los angeles riqueza de su folclor, el encanto y sabiduría de sus mitos y descubrir sus aspectos negativos y alienantes, incongruentes, como sistema de creencias, en una sociedad que como Cuba, ha alcanzado los angeles etapa socialista del desarrollo de los angeles humanidad.
Con Los ñáñigos se profundizan y amplían los nexos históricos de parentesco y de solidaridad que unen entrañablemente a países dé nuestra América y Africa.

7 There is yet another oversight on Lucchesi’s part that must be noted: it concerns the specific versus nonspecific readings of null morphemes. Although Lucchesi’s claim that nouns unmarked by an article may get a specific reading is correct, it is important to refine such an observation and note that only plural nouns marked with the zero form article may get a specific or nonspecific interpretation according to the context. For instance, a sentence like omis gosta di bebe grogu could be interpreted as ‘men (nonspecific) like to drink hard liquor’ or ‘the men (specific reading) like to drink hard liquor’.

To do so, children are assumed to rely on morphological cues in the target language. , subject– verb agreement, morphological case) among languages have crucial syntactic ramifications. In this respect, it is worth mentioning that a widely accepted typological assumption is that those languages with a richer morphology display a relatively greater freedom in word order. We show in this book that although CVC is endowed with minimal verbal morphology, the language displays a relatively flexible word order in specific respects.
