Language ideologies and the globalization of 'standard' Spanish.

Paffey, Darren J. (2012) Language ideologies and the globalization of 'standard' Spanish., New York, US, Bloomsbury, 208pp. (Advances in Sociolinguistics).

Record type: Book


This book examines how language ideologies are manifested in newspaper media. Using the Spanish press as a case study it considers how media discourse both from and about the Real Academia Española constitutes a set of 'language ideological debates' in which the institution represents a vision of what the Spanish language is and what it should be like. The book covers recent research on language ideologies, standardisation and CDA and considers the application of these to three ore discursive themes: language unity and a concept of a 'panhispanic' speech community; the RAE's construction of its authority, and institutional ideologies and management of language on a global scale.
