Item description for Defensa Apasionada Del Idioma Espanol/ a Passionate Defense of the Spanish Language by Alex Grijelmo...

Every language holds the essence of the people that speak and have spoken them since their origin. With each word that disappears an idea originated by humankind dies. In this book, lex Grijelmo looks to defend the Spanish language from all that threatens it schooling, the colonizing power of the English language, the apathy of those that are in control of the political, economic and informative powers. Through progress and coexistence of all the different cultures that constitute the Hispanic world, the author searches for the clues that will allow us to overcome this potential crisis. Description in Spanish: Todas las lenguas atesoran un genio interno que guarda las esencias de los pueblos que las hablan y las han hablado, jams una lengua se debe utilizar contra otra. Con cada palabra que desaparece se pierde una idea creada por el ser humano. El idioma espaol se ve amenazado por la educacin escolar, la fuerza colonial del ingls y la desidia de una gran parte de quienes tienen el poder poltico, informativo y econmico. lex Grijelmo busca las claves para superar esta situacin a travs del progreso y la convivencia entre las culturas que conforman el mundo hispano. El lector encontrar aqu una defensa, nunca un ataque.

Reviews - What do customers think about Defensa Apasionada Del Idioma Espanol/ a Passionate Defense of the Spanish Language?

Well written and timely book - also relevant for other languages  Nov 20, 2007
This is a witty and well written book about the state of the Spanish language and how it can be defended against, among other things, the invasion of English and general neglect and misuse. It is relevant also for people interested in other European languages that face similar challenges. Reading the book made me curious about Grijelmo's other work and I have ordered one of his other books (on grammar).
