Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

Title: La lengua, ¿patria común?
Subtitle: Ideas e ideologías del español
Edited By: José del Valle
URL: http://www.ibero-americana.net/cgi-bin/infodetail.cgi?isbn=9788484893066&doknr=521306&lang=en
Series Title: Lengua y Sociedad en el Mundo Hispánico, 17
Description:

¿Cuál es la naturaleza de las disputas en torno al estatus simbólico del
español? Este libro aspira a responder parcialmente a esta pregunta a
través del análisis tanto de las políticas contemporáneas orientadas a la
difusión del idioma como de los discursos paralelos de legitimación. Desde
el concepto de ideología lingüística y frente a los paradigmas del
nacionalismo y la globalización, se analizan críticamente líneas de acción
político-lingüística asociadas con instituciones tales como la RAE y el
Instituto Cervantes: la afirmación del español como base de la
hispanofonía, su diseño y explotación como activo económico, su difusión
como lengua global y su aceptación en España como lengua común. Colaboran
en este volumen José del Valle, Mauro Fernández, Laura Villa, Kathryn A.
Woolard, Ángel López García y Luis Fernando Lara.
