The main goal of this paper is the analysis of the language ideologies that Arturo Pérez Reverte supports in the opinion pieces that he publishes weekly in XL Semanal. From his position of discursive privilege, the writer and academician endorses a panhispanic perspective that is ambiguously linked to Spanish Nationalism. From this point of view, Spanish is at the same time a meeting point for a large group of people in a postnational context and a dominant lengua común among the languages spoken in Spain. Regarding linguistic change, Pérez Reverte supports with violence the authority of the Real Academia Española and denies legitimacy to other possibilities of change, which are presented as linked with ephemeral political interests.

Abstract

The main goal of this paper is the analysis of the language ideologies that Arturo Pérez Reverte supports in the opinion pieces that he publishes weekly in XL Semanal. From his position of discursive privilege, the writer and academician endorses a panhispanic perspective that is ambiguously linked to Spanish Nationalism. From this point of view, Spanish is at the same time a meeting point for a large group of people in a postnational context and a dominant lengua común among the languages spoken in Spain. Regarding linguistic change, Pérez Reverte supports with violence the authority of the Real Academia Española and denies legitimacy to other possibilities of change, which are presented as linked with ephemeral political interests.
