Observaciones agustinianas sobre la metonimia y su Pervivencia en Algunos Textos Gramaticales Hispánicos
In this paper the Augustinian concept of metonymy is analyzed through a commentary on de ciuitate Dei 11, 8 (CCSL 48, 327-328) and other parallel texts as well as their survival in some grammatical texts produced in Visigothic Spain. This study demonstrates the enormous influence of Augustine's thought in these texts, either through an indirect tradition, or through direct reading of his writings.
