Abstract:

The normalization of place names in Spain shows an uneven development: while other linguistic communities have reached an advanced level of normalization, areas where Castilian is spoken exclusively show considerable heterogeneity in their use of place names. This volume, containing contributions by leading specialists in Hispanic toponymy, traces the initiatives carried out until today and discusses possibilities of further regulating and systematizing the use of place names, particularly in the field of minor toponymy.

El estado actual de la normalización de los nombres de lugar en España presenta un desarrollo muy desigual: mientras que en las comunidades que cuentan con una lengua propia, además de la castellana, el proceso de normalización se halla muy avanzado, en las áreas lingüísticas exclusivamente castellanas esta cuestión apenas si ha sido abordada hasta la actualidad, por lo que el uso de los nombres adolece de una considerable heterogeneidad y falta de criterio. En este libro se trata de exponer en contraste el trabajo realizado hasta la fecha en el territorio estatal y sentar las bases para avanzar de forma decidida hacia el cumplimiento de las recomendaciones formuladas por la UNESCO en lo que se refiere a la regulación del uso de los nombres de lugar, principalmente de la toponimia menor.
