THE CATALAN LANGUAGE: 10 MILLION EUROPEAN VOICES - TALK

Saturday 19 October: 11:00am - 12:00pm

West Road Concert Hall, Recital Room, 11 West Road, CB3 9DP

Brought to you by the Catalan Lectureship of the University of Cambridge and the NGO Plataforma per la Llengua, this double event consists on a talk on the minoratised languages of Europe and an exhibition on the Catalan linguistic reality. In the talk, Afra Pujol i Campeny will explore Europe’s linguistic mosaic by focusing on lesser known languages spoken in many European states and their struggle for survival fighting minoratisation. In the exhibition, the myth that Catalan is a minority language will be dispelled through uncovering key facts about its status within the states where it is spoken and its vitality, being the 14th most spoken language in Europe and the 20th most used on Wikipedia.

Dr Afra Pujol i Campeny specialises in Romance linguistics, particularly historical Catalan syntax and historical Catalan sociolinguistics.
