Catalan or Spanish? Language Choice from Home to School
Carles de Rosselló i Peralta
30-42 (complete paper or proceedings contents)


Sociopolitical changes have dramatically altered the situation of Catalan in many domains; its establishment as the everyday language of instruction represents one of the most significant advances. Despite this fact, the usage of this language is not increasing among schoolchildren in Barcelona during their intergroup interactions that are usually resolved in Spanish. Through ethnographic analysis, the present study shows that under certain sociolinguistic conditions this pattern can be partially modified.
