'CAPUT' IN THE MEDIEVAL LATIN FROM ASTURIAS AND LEON
Languages of publication
The aim of this paper is to analyse the uses and meanings of 'caput' in the Medieval Latin of an Hispanic area, Asturias and Leon, between the eighth century and 1230. For this period, we count with a corpus of about 8.000 diplomatic texts and eight chronicles. 'Caput' is also compared with its Romance equal 'cabeza', which also occurs in the corpus. Moreover, the author examines the chronological distribution and the graphic and morphological variants of both words.
