In sum, "A contribution to the study of conversation in English" can be considered a summary of the state of the art and a compendium of different opinions about conversion in English. The variety of conceptions which are included and assessed offers the reader the possibility to notice the links between some opposed perspectives for a better understanding of this process. As the reader advances, there is the feeling that conversion is much more complex a process than it initially seems and, in that sense, Balteiro sucessfully portrays the many nuances of this process.
