Versão Original

Xosé María
Álvarez Blázquez


“Every language carries within itself the criteria and the distinctive elements which are sufficient for generating attitudes of identification or exclusion toward the participants in real or hypothetical interaction.”

-A. J. Greimas, “Des modèles théoriques en socio-linguistique (pour une grammaire socio-sémiotique)”, in Sémiotique et sciences sociales-

“If Béarnais (or, elsewhere, Creole) is one day spoken on formal occasions, this will be by virtue of its takeover by speakers of the dominant language, who have enough claims to linguistic legitimacy (at least in the eyes of their interlocutors) to avoid being suspected of resorting to the stigmatized language faute de mieux”.

-Pierre Bourdieu, Ce que parler veut dire-
