Description

Spanish in Catalonia still remains largely unrecognized in Spanish dialectology. This monograph provides a linguistic record that both recognizes the legitimacy of this Spanish dialect and facilitates its linguistic description and analysis. This book reflects on the Spanish of Catalonia and furnishes documentary resources for studying colloquial Spanish spoken in naturally occurring social groups in Barcelona. Part I addresses many complex issues necessary to appropriately contextualize Spanish language usage in Barcelona and linguistic analysis of such usage, with discussions of language contact, ethnolinguistic identities, language ideologies, ways of speaking, corpus-based research, fieldwork methodology, and speaker profiles. Part II presents the first known publication of orthographically transcribed spoken language corpus data from colloquial Spanish conversations in naturally occurring social groups in Catalonia. The volume thus contributes to scholarship in Spanish sociolinguistics and dialectology, documentary linguistics, anthropological linguistics, and the sociology of language. This work will appeal to academics worldwide in these and related fields (e.g., contact linguistics, discourse analysis, Hispanic studies, and Catalan studies), to Spanish teachers, and to the community studied.
