Este artículo investiga las posibilidades analíticas y descriptivas que ofrece el lenguaje visual aplicado al estudio de fenómenos gramaticales del español y su viabilidad como plataforma de introducción de dichos fenómenos en el aula de español como lengua extranjera. A continuación se definen las características del uso funcional del lenguaje gráfico como medio de representación de elementos gramaticales, que hemos denominado: imagen metalingüística. Finalmente, se ofrecen algunos ejemplos de imagen metalingüística de algunos fenómenos gramaticales del español que resultan especialmente problemáticos en el aula de ELE. (This article peeks into the analytic and descriptive possibilities that the application of visual language can offer when applied to the description of Spanish grammar phenomena and its viability as a device to introduce such phenomena in the Spanish as a foreign language (E/LE) classroom. Secondly, the characteristics of the functional use of visual language as a tool of grammar representation –which we have called metalinguistic image– are defined. Finally, some metalinguistic image analysis of controversial Spanish grammar points in E/LE classroom are given as an example of this kind of analysis).
