The impact of economic and geocultural
globalisation on language ideologies and patterns of language use in
society has established itself as a major topic in sociolinguistics. It
is claimed that in the context of globalisation the visibility and
legitimacy of local speech in public discourse have increased
(Androutsopoulos 2009). In the particular case of Spanish this has lead
researchers to pose the question whether Spanish is a pluricentric
language (Thompson 1992, Bierbach 2000, Oesterreicher 2000). Although
the RAE has been reluctant in embracing the view that Latin American
varieties of Spanish are on equal footing with the Castilian standard,
it has now adopted a “rhetoric of acceptance of linguistic diversity and
variation” (Villa & del Valle 2014). However, several questions
remain open, such as how many varieties can be considered standards, who
are the norm setting authorities, and, on a more general level, does
the concept of universally valid linguistic standards still have
significance in global and highly complex linguistic markets?
The aim of this conference is to
examine uses, perceptions and ideologies of regional (standard?)
varieties in national and transnational hispanic speech communities.
Linguists and language practitioners are invited to reflect on uses and
effects of regionally marked and supposedly unmarked linguistic
resources in different domains of public language use, as well as on the
representation of regional varieties in normative reference works.
