The spirit of “Donde Nacen Las Palabras” is not only to achieve the relationship of words with things but also to establish the relationship between word, thing, meaning and all the possible experiences that you, the spectator, have of the thing. Therefore, Donde Nacen Las Palabras attempts to bring the semiotic feeling that you have of the thing and trap it in a net behind the words so that you can choose from the plethora of meanings the appropriate one for the occasion. Donde Nacen Las Palabras is a visual recount of my presentation “Grammar, Scope and Sequence as Inclusion to the Spanish Immersion and Dual Language Programs” this year in New York at the NABE International Conference. Donde Nacen Las Palabras is an introduction to grammar without grammatical categories and a presentation of vocabulary that seeks to connect the extreme lover of words to the everyday world around us.
