Abstract

In 1897, Pérez Galdós in his opening speech to the Royal Academy of Language, entitled “Spanish society as a Novelable Matter” mentioned the elements that make the novel an image of life and among them he pointed out that language was one of the most representative. All languages are represented in his novels and in his theatre, from the standard language, the political one, the legal one, the scientific one, the Abstracts ISSN 1540 5877 eHumanista/IVITRA 19 (2021): i-xxv xvi oratory to the familiar language with its turns and idioms. Galdós used several procedures to reproduce the familiar speech of the people living in Madrid, fruit of his intuition rather than study of stylistic techniques. One of these procedures is the use of phraseological units, an aspect that this article aims to analyse. In particular, some locutios and popular proverbs with somatisms cited in Fortunata and Jacinta (1887) will be analyzed in order to classify them according to their structure and function.
En 1897, Benito Pérez Galdós en su discurso de entrada a la Academia Real de la Lengua, titulado “La sociedad española como materia novelable” mencionaba los elementos que hacen de la novela una imagen de la vida y entre ellos señalaba que era el lenguaje, uno de los más representativos. Todos los lenguajes están representados en sus novelas y en su teatro, desde el lenguaje estándar, el político, el jurídico, el lenguaje científico, la oratoria hasta el lenguaje familiar con sus giros y modismos. Galdós empleaba varios procedimientos para reproducir el habla familiar de los madrileños, fruto de su intuición más que de estudio de técnicas estilísticas. Uno de dichos procedimientos es el empleo de unidades fraseológicas, aspecto que el presente artículo pretende estudiar. En particular se analizarán las locuciones y refranes con somatismos citados en Fortunata y Jacinta (1887), con el fin de clasificarlos según su estructura y función.
