Exploring Linguistic Standards in Non-Dominant Varieties of Pluricentric Languages- Explorando estándares lingüísticos en variedades no dominantes de lenguas pluricéntricas

Series:

Edited By Rudolf Muhr, Carla Amorós Negre and Carmen Fernández Juncal

This volume commemorates the 20 th anniversary of Michael Clyne’s seminal volume «Pluricentric languages. Differing norms in different countries» published in 1992. The main focus of this volume is the exploration of linguistic standards in non-dominant varieties and the discovery of the ways in which different language communities of non-dominant varieties reconcile their wish to express their national, social and personal identity via language with their desire to adhere to a common language. Another central focus is the way in which the norms of languages, and in particular those of non-dominant varieties of pluricentric languages, can be standardized or how given standards can be changed. The papers show that the state of standardization in pluricentric languages may differ strongly from language to language and also differ between varieties of the same language.
El libro conmemora el vigésimo aniversario del influyente volumen publicado por Michael Clyne en 1992, «Pluricentric languages. Differing norms in different countries». El objetivo principal consiste en «explorar estándares lingüísticos en variedades no dominantes» e indagar cómo las diferentes comunidades lingüísticas reconcilian la pretensión de expresar su propia identidad nacional, social y personal a través del lenguaje con su mismo deseo de adherencia a una lengua común. Otra cuestión central atiende a la manera en que las normas lingüísticas y, en particular, las normas de las variedades lingüísticas de lenguas pluricéntricas pueden convertirse en estándares o cómo los estándares establecidos pueden ser modificados. Los diversos artículos muestran que la situación y el grado de estandarización en las diversas lenguas pluricéntricas pueden diferir en gran manera entre las distintas lenguas y entre variedades diferentes de una misma lengua.

In: Rudolf Muhr, Carla Amorós Negre, Carmen Fernández Juncal, Klaus Zimmermann, Emilio Prieto, Natividad Hernández (eds.)

Carmen FERNÁNDEZ JUNCAL and Natividad HERNÁNDEZ MUÑOZ (Universidad de Salamanca, España) cjuncal@usal.es / natih@usal.es Focos normativos y léxico no estándar: el caso del español septentrional Abstract This paper focuses on using non-standard lexicon measuring to observe the behaviour of several areas belonging to the Castilian variety within Spanish Language as well as checking if the traditional normative foci match the areas where a lexicon closer to the standard is preserved whereas the non-dominant peripheral areas move away from implicit models. For such a purpose, data obtained in the Lexical Availability Pan-Hispanic Project are used. Within this project the lexicon available in Spain is currently being gathered, representing one of the wider syn- chronic lexical corpora with a greater possibility of variation in the analysis for the study of Spanish language. Therefore, conclusions will be drawn about the degree of proximity or distance of the marginal ar- eas regarding this centralizing focus. It will also be checked if the geo- graphical component is a decisive factor in the dispersion of apparently compact modalities. 1.
