ECHEVERRIA, Max S. Programas computacionales para el español como legua materna. Rev. signos [online]. 2002, vol.35, n.51-52, pp.163-193. ISSN 0718-0934.

The irruption of new information and communication technologies (IT's) in every field of human enterprise has brought about a qualitative change in our contemporary world. Video, computers, CDROM, multimedia, have changed the way we work and think. Linguistics has been no exemption and consequently we are today surrounded by interactive electronic dictionaries, automatic translators, databases for sociolinguistic research, language learning software, etc. On the other hand, Spanish-speaking countries have realized that a major change in Education should take place in order to form an individual more autonomous, creative and responsible of developing his own capacities and building his own knowledge. These two forces, educational and technological change, have made us wonder what their influence on our language practices could be, and mainly what is the role of IT's on the teaching and learning of Spanish among native speakers. This work focuses on the way several computer applications may be instrumental in the acquisition and development of language knowledge and competence in areas such as language variation, reading comprehension, lexical availability, discourse production and related fields.
