Institution: Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México
Linguistic Field: Applied Linguistics
Abstract: This article is part of a doctoral dissertation that aims to explain, from the formal description of textual mathematical discourse, the structural elements that could be interfering during reading comprehension of algebraic textbooks by Mexican native Spanish speakers. The method applied is that of diachronic linguistics and language change. In essence, it presupposes that modern algebraic symbolism grew out of word forms and gradually adopted their modern symbolic character. Thus, it aims to describe the change of noumenal information messages (J. Doblin, 1980) expressed under numeric characters in XVI century Spanish, into symbolic phonographic characters in modern times.
