El canvi de l'arquitectura lingüística de les terres catalanes en els segles XVIII i XIX

Rolf Kailuweit

Resum


Description of the model of linguistic architecture in the Catalonian regions in the 18th and 19th centuries. The author develops the conceptual pair genolect, or transmitted language/gramolect, or referential learned language, and applies it to the academic speech of 1780, in which a scholar from Puigcerdà presents the linguistic ideas and attitudes of his lime in Castilian. The analysis of the text, collated with other sources, allows the indentification of a five-gramolect concurrence (Latin, literary Catalan, literary CastiHan, regional Castilian, and aspoken Catalan influenced by Castilian), each struggling for hegemony in a speech-fragmented community with
a heterogenous genolectal reality.
