La historia de la partícula aparte en español
This paper deals with the history of the Spanish particle aparte. We describe this evolution from an adverbial usage (with spatial and modal values) to its current function as an additive discourse marker, taking into account its special character, which distinguishes aparte from the rest of the elements included in the subsystem of additive adverbs. As we show, the evolution of aparte is a typical instance of a subjectification process. Certain questions arise as to its adscription to a given syntactic category in certain contexts and about its lexicographic description in the Nuevo Diccionario Histórico.
