Description

Title:The standardizations of Catalan: Latin to present day
Author(s):Stillwell, Kevin; Hetrovicz, Lauren
Subject(s):Linguistics
Catalan
Standardization
Abstract:In this study, using Haugen’s (1972) model of language standardization, we argue that the standardization of Catalan is best understood to be two distinct processes of standardization following a common trajectory, with the second process being informed, though not determined, by the first. While much ink has been spilt discussing the nineteenth-century “re-birth” of Catalan and the linguistic normalization following the death of Franco, comparatively little work has been done on the early development of Catalan as the standard language of the medieval Kingdom of Aragon and less still examining both of these processes.
