Rhetorical Exclamative in Spanish
Andueza, Patricia L.

2011, Doctor of Philosophy, Ohio State University, Spanish and Portuguese.
Although standard exclamatives have been studied for the last thirty years, (as far as I know) rhetorical exclamatives have not been studied at all in any language, (as far as I know).The purpose of this dissertation is to analyze the systematic internal characterization of rhetorical exclamatives in Spanish, from a syntactic, semantic and pragmatic point of view.I compare the sentence class of rhetorical exclamatives to (with) standard exclamatives and to (with) rhetorical questions. I focus on the most representative members of the rhetorical-exclamative class, namely those introduced by gradable adjectival or adverbial phrases.
