Attitude to Language as a Sociolinguistic Problem: A Case of Catalan Bilinguals
Sociology
(Bachelor’s programme)

2019
This study aims to identify attitudes towards language and identity in Catalonia. The study analyzes this phenomenon based on the model of Spanish-Catalan bilingualism. The study is based on 13 semi-structured interviews. We examined informants who live throughout the life in Catalonia in one of three cities: Barcelona, ​​Girona, Taragona. We assume that linguistic behavior will mainly depend on national identity due to the long-standing Spanish-Catalan conflict, the topic of dialogue and political ideology. This study includes a review of the literature on the history of the conflict, a review of linguistic and sociolinguistic literature about identity and code-switching, research methodology and analysis of the obtained empirical data.
