Monolingualism, Bilingualism, Cultural Pluralism, and National Identity: Twenty Years of Language Planning in Contemporary Spain.
Hoffmann, Charlotte
Current Issues in Language and Society, v2 n1 p59-89 1995
Discusses language planning in modern Spain in terms of policy formation and implementation. The article argues that the elevation of Castilian to a position of linguistic supremacy is closely connected with the history of the development of a Spanish centralized state. It is concluded that whereas linguistic pluralism exists in theory, social acceptance of linguistic diversity is not a reality. (46 references) (CK)
