Description The present article offers an analysis of the narrative uses of (a)hé in the Cantar de Mio Cid. The argument will be made that the peculiar syntactic construction headed by this deictic element constitutes an important linguistic resource within the narrative discourse. On the one hand, its semantic and pragmatic properties are exploited by the medieval narrator as a way to catch and direct the audience’s attention and to highlight sudden or surprising events (mirativity). On the other hand, it is used as a macro-textual structuring device marking important points within the narrative.
El presente artículo ofrece un análisis de los usos narrativos de (a)hé en el Cantar de mio Cid. Se mostrará que la peculiar construcción sintáctica encabezada por este elemento deíctico-presentativo constituye un importante recurso lingüístico cuyas propiedades semánticas y pragmáticas las aprovecha el narrador medieval no solamente para dirigir de modo expresivo la atención de su público y escenificar eventos imprevistos y sorprendentes (miratividad), sino también como marcador macrotextual.
