Other note worthy authors of this century include the Franciscan Agustfn de Vetancourta linguist and historian, and Francisco Bramon who published a pastoral laa in The evident differences between Spanish and English grammar and syntax mean that, by their very nature, 46 some sentence structures and verb tenses in the source texts, may have to change in the target texts in order to conform to English usage.
