These played a similar role to the eisteddfod in Wales, which also experienced a major revival in the early nineteenth century. Heightened cultural awareness, however, led Catalans to want to emphasise and control their separate identity in a way that the centralised governments of the Spanish state did not allow. This, of course, included the promotion of their own language, particularly through literature and other cultural activities and through the education system. In particular in the many periods of central government crises of the nineteenth century, Catalans felt frustrated by the Spanish state.

Today ten of the Latin American states that were former Spanish colonies enshrine in a current constitution the status of Spanish or Castilian. The majority of these refer to Spanish as the ‘official’ language, but in some states Spanish is referred to in legal decrees as the ‘national’ language. Clearly in such manifestly multi-ethnic societies the distinction between these two terms is extremely important. How would you distinguish between the two terms? Is this a similar distinction as that which we can make between ‘state’ and ‘nation’?

In what kind of ways do you think the Franco regime would have wanted to influence language use and why? The use of minority (non-Castilian) languages was seen as anti-patriotic. These languages were therefore proscribed from public use and ridiculed. A situation, once again, of enforced diglossia existed in regions such as Catalonia, shutting down the expansion in the use of minority languages which had taken place during the Republic. The regime carefully chose to refer to these languages as ‘dialects’ of Spanish (with the exception of Basque).
