Vico considers that there are two forms of knowledge: the original form of fables poetic logic and the more abstract knowledge of philosophers which appeared at a later stage in human genealogy. When we read Vico, we realize the debt Lakoff and Johnson owe to this humanist. Another important author in constructivist epistemology is Hayden White, a recently deceased philosopher of history, who studies this discipline from Vico's tropological perspective. As seen above, White makes a distinction between events data that occurred , facts the meaning of what happened and plot or narrative through the use of certain tropes.
From the constructivist perspective of these two authors, any kind of knowledge about the facts of reality events, in White's sense is a construction of subjects by means of narratives created from tropological resources; the most important for Vico is the metaphor. These narratives offer a specific meaning of the data, thus constructing facts according to the personal vision of the authors and their historical moment.
White, in his book Metahistory , dedicated to the analysis of the variations of historiography in the 19th century, shows the different variations of historians in the face of identical events. This leads him to wonder about a crucial aspect in historical narrative: the one of truth.

Since it is not possible for him to speak in terms of truth or falsehood in the narrative construction of history, he wonders how to avoid the relativism to which this conclusion would lead. Languages from constructivism According to Woolard 19 , linguistic ideologies are explicit or implicit representations, which interpret the relationship between language and human beings in the social world see also del Valle From our constructivist point of view, we could also consider these representations, following White, as diverse narratives about languages and their relationship with each other; in other words, as narratives that emerge from the various discourses that have been constructed in our socio-cultural context see also Larsen-Freeman y Cameron Our initial hypothesis is that the following two ideological constructions emerge in the sphere of bilingualism in Spain.
The container metaphor According to this construction, languages are perceived as products of the "mind"; either in the Saussurian perspective: language as a code which allows the transference of ideas from the mind of the speaker to the mind of the hearer Harris ; or understood in terms of cognitive theory: language as a computational device; as a coupling of different levels, internalised in the speaker's brain.
This mentalist perspective is also present in Sapir and Worf's hypothesis of linguistic relativity, in the sense that reality is analysed in accordance with the mental categories imposed upon it and us by our native language Harris The consequence of this metaphor has finally, as mentioned earlier, the consideration of each language as a product of the mind, a cognitive universe in itself, which can even bring a different view of the world to its users. Considered in these terms, this position can date back to the hypothesis of linguistic relativism and even earlier, to the romantic authors, such as Humboldt Escavy Zamora With it, we approach the ideological construction of the following metaphor.
The ecolinguistic metaphor Languages are part of ecosystems, in the same way as cells, pluricellular organisms, whether or not they are grouped in colonies or societies, etc. Languages majority and minority are the result of groupings of individuals of the same species. And all of them need to be preserved under equal conditions, like other ecosystems Calvet and Varela For authors like Heller , this ecological perspective has replaced the nationalist ideology, although it remains at the core.
There is a conflict in spaces where there is social multilingualism this is what del Valle, , calls "the plot of confrontation". The inevitability of the conflict leads to the argument that it is necessary to replace one language with another: either in an undemocratic way, as happened in the Franco era Moreno Cabrera , or through laws based on historical rights. Blommaert calls this position the "language rights paradigm". For authors such as O'Rourke et al. As constructions, they are narratives which have been used to justify the different linguistic policies in Spain; for many they have also become topoi on which new arguments have been built Gal However, they have also been the focus of controversies and ideological disputes between political opponents since the beginning of the 20th century, as explained in Monteagudo This has led to the perpetuation of the framework of the linguistic conflict see an update in Lagarde Due to my experience in the two bilingual situations I am familiar with, Catalonia and Galicia, this problem has not ceased growing.
There are recent examples that demonstrate this. I am going to discuss two of them, one in Galicia and the other in Catalonia. They are part of the discourses I have called post- 15M, the subject of my research in recent years. Xulio Ferreiro In the linguistic sphere, they have also advocated the revitalisation of the use of Galician in local government, after many years of rejection of this language by the Socialist Party PSOE and then by the Popular Party PP. In terms of linguistic rights, it is therefore a matter of "social justice" that the use of Galician in the city has been recovered in the public space, since a part of its population uses it in their daily lives.
This is what the mayor said at an event in Barcelona September 4, with the other "mayors of change" the followers of the ideas of the 15M : "We are a tide, we are a tide of change, but there is still a long way to go before high tide We are riding a paradox, we are entering as trespassers into an institution that had been stolen from us, and now we have a double mission there, to make common people stop feeling like trespassers in their own town hall, at the same time as we maintain that status of trespassers Xulio Ferreiro's narrative construction is based on the idea that En Marea is the people's party, which has taken power at a municipal level as part of the citizen's mobilization that emerged after the 15M movement.
The metaphor of the tide activates the strength of this movement of the working classes, which according to him, also share Galician as their language, and which have a social effect parallel to the strength and power of the tides on the Galician coast. Thus we see the substitution of one language by another, and therefore, the survival of the conflict, in the context of a city that also speaks Spanish in its daily life.
Citizenship is openly bilingual, but the municipality is unilingual as it has always been. What has changed is the specific language of the "ecological niche". The latest reports mention regression in the use of the language This gives the idea that the language and culture are something ornamental, and dispensable in times of crisis. For Marea this is not the case — both the language and culture [are] a substantial part of the common good, an instrument of development that must obviously be promoted, and we must contribute as much as possible to their development… [C]ulture is a mechanism of transformation towards an inclusive, educated and free society, and only from the plurality and integration of identities In this round table discussion, while the two main parties in Galicia, the PP and the PSOE, referred to the bilingualism of Galician society, En Marea once again showed a unilinguistic vision.
For Mayor Xulio Ferreiro, Galician was the language of the common people. At no time does she refer to social bilingualism, as did the representatives of the other parties mentioned, or to the fact that this bilingualism can also contribute to the values she mentions. She overlooks the fact that Galician-Spanish bilingualism is a socio-cultural value and also defines Galician citizenship. It is therefore apparent how the ecological metaphor can be re-activated from her words. The Galician society that this party imagines only seems to have room for the Galician language.
The consequence that is inferred from her words is the need to dispense with or make Spanish invisible in order to achieve complete social welfare for the citizens. This leads us to ask several very specific questions. What will happen if, in the following municipal elections, a change takes place in the mayor's office of the city? Will there be a return to the substitution of Galician for Spanish, given that the problem of competition and the linguistic conflict between these groups has not yet been solved?
To illustrate the second example, I will refer to the case of Barcelona city council, currently governed by another of the so-called "mayors of change", the mayor Ada Colau Fig. Ciudadanos was born in Catalonia and from the beginning it was perceived as a party opposed to Catalan nationalism, and has made its clear hostility towards Catalan independence its trademark. It is therefore logical and predictable that the working classes should vote for it in the Catalan election. In electoral behaviour, "being against" counts as much as "being in favour".
Now, the Spanish "patriotic" message, which was defence of Spanish identity in Catalonia, was won by Ciudadanos And there is the challenge of the non-independence left.. Anyone who has lived The only thing I want is for the next generations to have the right to be bilingual Those most interested in protecting this right are the Spanish-speakers Unlike the Galician representatives of En Marea, Joan Mena explicitly alludes to the bilingual situation in Catalonia.
He identifies this bilingualism with the immersion model, which makes Catalan the language of instruction throughout the educational process. Spanish is relegated to a subject on the curriculum, with the same number of hours as the subject of Catalan. In his opinion, this has led to a high level of acquisition of this language among the entire emigrant Spanish-speaking school population.
This model is also rated positively by this politician, due to its role in social cohesion, in the same way as the representative of En Marea did. In this way, Joan Mena thereby defends the educational status quo on the basis of the ecological metaphor, and the historical right of Catalan to be the priority language in its territory.
For this reason, the inequality of teaching Spanish throughout the educational stage is not questioned, which is something that some Catalan right-wing parties are doing. With these two examples, I have endeavoured to show the linguistic position of these two new parties in two different regions of the Spanish state.

In both cases, we see the persistence of the conflict framework, a consequence of the metaphorical constructions that are at the base of their social action and discursive practice. We will consider this issue again after we have discussed the last of the metaphors. This is based on the ideas of the biologists Maturana and Varela. Let us first consider the following extract from Maturana: " In other words, our entire human reality is social, and we are individuals, people, only insofar as we are social beings in language. Converse 'cum versare', 'spin around with the other'.
Language as a process does not take place in the body the nervous system Words are, therefore, modes of consensual behavioural co- ordinations" 13, In this framework, the mind is the "process of living" of an individual in communicative relationship with others — what Maturana and Varela call languaging. This approach moves from the metaphorical construction of the mind as a "container", with clear limits, which is the position of classical cognitivism the container metaphor to one with the mind as part of a comprehensive ecology not only biological, but also simultaneously biological and cultural , from which different cognitive processes emerge including the capacity for language and languages which make us specifically human.
Consequently, what is important in this process are the networks of interaction that individuals create through language in different social groups: "The world everyone sees is not the world, but a world " Maturana and Varela The different linguistic patterns emerge from the interactions; the boundaries between these patterns languages, varieties, etc. From this perspective, bilingualism and multilingualism would therefore be perceived as a dynamic process that can vary according to the needs of individuals and social groups. Could this vision provide new perspectives for the construction of other discourses that go beyond the ideological framework of the conflict in the linguistic policies of the Spanish languages?
From this more dynamic position, there are no languages specific to a territory.
Similarly, the distinction between minority and majority languages is not what matters, as is the case in the ecological metaphor. All the languages that speakers use to interact with each other will be their languages. The mutual consensus will determine which of them should be learned by all, in order to guarantee inter-communicative richness among its speakers.
The conflict framework has been based on competition between languages. Hence the obsession, as Heller says, with "demolinguistics" — the study and evolution of linguistic groups based on quantitative surveys to determine the vitality of languages. This is also the context in which planners are so concerned about language replacement in order to prevent the loss of minority languages Vila i Moreno ; Pradilla Carmona In the eco-biosociological metaphor, what makes us human is our ability to coordinate our actions through language languaging.
The "human" therefore does not have an exclusively genetic or biological character as in other living beings. This has given rise to confidence that knowledge of the world or worlds we live in will validate our arguments and cognitive affirmations, and strengthen our power over them. It is based on this trust that philosophical theories were invented to justify the political preservation of these emotions. Human coexistence therefore becomes a struggle of truths; it is no longer understanding that is central to coexistence, but being right Maturana and Varela When moving towards a new era based on cooperation, it is necessary to cast off certainties as the first step towards reflection on one's own life and as the second step, on conscious ethical action based on respect for oneself and for others.
Feminist and environmentalist discourses would fit perfectly into this new metaphor. I do not think the same is true of language policy based on the framework of conflict. Many individuals identified as Hispanics based on the U. For example, many of those from Bolivia , Guatemala , and Peru constitute a majority or plurality of the population as do a considerable proportion in Mexico.
Many Hispanics born in or with descent from the Dominican Republic , Venezuela , Puerto Rico , Colombia , Cuba , Uruguay , and other countries may be of African descent, be it mulatto mixed European and black African , zambo mixed Amerindian and black African , triracial specifically European, black African, and Amerindian , or unmixed black African. Recently, Hispanics of unmixed black African blood are perceived and defined by American mass media and popular culture as Hispanic, because of existing mulatto Hispanics of Negroid phenotypes and the dark-skinned stereotype of Hispanics.
In countries like Mexico , there was a process of miscegenation , which resulted in many people having both indigenous and European origins. Many white Mexicans , though labeled Hispanic by the U. Nevertheless, in most cases, they have some Spanish ancestry, as the waves of European immigrants to these countries tended to quickly assimilate, intermarrying with the country's local population. From to , the U. Census form did not distinguish between whites and Mexican Americans. Census form asked for "color or race," and census enumerators were instructed to write W for white and Mex for Mexican.
Like mentioned above, the Hispanics of Caucasian race, including white Mexicans, white Argentines, white Uruguayans, and white Chileans, and Spaniards themselves, who are perceived by U. Likewise, a percentage of Hispanics as defined by the U. If they were to migrate to the United States, the definition most frequently advocated would consider them Hispanic see also: Asian Hispanic American and Asian Hispanic and Latino Americans. The presence of these mentioned ethnic groups are not country-specific, since they can be found in every Hispanic American country, whether as larger of smaller proportions of their respective populations.
Even in Spain, the European motherland of Hispanicity, recent decades has seen a growing population of mestizos and mulattoes and of unmixed Amerindian and African descent due to the reversal of the historic Old World -to- New World migration pattern, i. Of the over 35 million Hispanics counted in the Federal Census , Census, although maybe in less proportion. According to one study Stephens et al. The populations of Iberia both Spain and Portugal , like all European populations, have received multiple other influences, even though they are still largely descended from the prehistoric European populations, and to a greater degree than any other major group.
The former Portuguese colony has a community of Afro-Cubans known as Amparos.
They descend from Cuban soldiers brought to the country in as a result of the Cuban involvement in the Cold War. Fidel Castro deployed thousands of troops to the country during the Angolan Civil War. As a result of this era, there exists a small Spanish-speaking community in Angola of Afro-Cubans numbering about , In the former Spanish province of Equatorial Guinea , although Portuguese and French are co-official languages, the majority of the population speak Spanish, there is a small minority of African people who possessed Spanish and other European ancestry.
In the former Spanish protectorate of Morocco , Spanish speakers are present in small numbers, located in the northern coastal region of the country. However the majority of Moroccan people are predominantly Arabic speaking Muslims of Berber and African ancestry. The small Amaro population are descendants of repatriated Afro-Cuban indentured servants.
Since the Reconquista , Spain has held numerous emplacements in North Africa. The Canary Islands , a constituent part of Spain's main territorial subdivisions, are also located in North Africa. In the former Spanish province of Western Sahara , Spanish is de facto official however, in the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic , one of the claimants to the territory, it is de jure co-official. In the Philippines , a Spanish Filipino is a Filipino who has Spanish or Hispanic lineage and descent, mostly born and raised in the Philippines.
Most common languages spoken today by Spanish Filipinos are Philippine Spanish , Spanish ; Chavacano , the only Spanish-based creole language in Asia and is spoken by over a million people; and English , which is used in the public sphere. A number of Spanish Filipinos also speak other Philippine languages. Castilian Spanish is the sole dialectal standard taught in schools, while Philippine Spanish currently has a few thousand native speakers left.
Despite its rapid decline in the 20th century, there has been a revival of interest in the Spanish language in the first decade of the 21st century. Many Philippine languages including Filipino notably contain numerous loanwords of Spanish origin. Spanish is the official language of Easter Island , a territorial possession of Chile in Polynesia , Easter Island is the only place in Austronesian world where people fluently speak Spanish.
The Mariana Islands today split between the United States territory of Guam and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands were formerly governed as a part of the Spanish East Indies , and thus many Chamorros possess some degree of Spanish admixture.

While most people living on these islands no longer speak Spanish, the native Chamorro language exhibits a noticeable Spanish influence in its vocabulary. Many Chamorros have also preserved Hispanic cultural elements such as fiestas , cockfighting , and the Catholic faith despite having integrated with the American way of life. Spanish surnames are still prevalent on Guam, it is spoken by Catholic people and Puerto Ricans , and the custom of women keeping their maiden names after marriage is a both byproduct of Spanish culture on these islands as well as the matrilineal structure of indigenous Chamorro culture.
Hispanophone[i] and Hispanosphere are terms used to refer to Spanish-language speakers and the Spanish-speaking world, respectively. The terms derive from the Latin political name of the Iberian Peninsula, Hispania. In addition to the general definition of Hispanophone, some groups in the Hispanic world make a distinction between Castilian-speaking[ii] and Spanish-speaking, with the former term denoting the speakers of the Spanish language—also known as Castilian—and the latter the speakers of the Spanish or Hispanic languages i.

Quinta is a traditional term for an estate, primarily used in Portugal and the Portuguese-speaking world. Originating in the Iberian Peninsula, the designation is rarely used in the Hispanophone world. Quinta da Avelada in Penafiel, an example of a traditional rural quinta. A quinta is a primarily rural property, especially those with historic manors and in continental Portugal.
The term is also used as an appellation for agricultural estates, such as wineries, vineyards, and olive groves. In urban contexts, quintas can often be walled-off mansions in city centers, but the term can also be applied as to edifices which were once located in a more rural setting which has since been developed. The name was later often given to generally larger land estates that might originally have been used for agricultural purposes, but were converted into residential estates.
The term has also been applied to affluent gated communities, in. Its continental European territory is situated on the Iberian Peninsula. Its territory also includes two archipelagoes: the Canary Islands off the coast of Africa, and the Balearic Islands in the Mediterranean Sea.

Many Hispanophones in the countries of Hispanic America have two given names, plus a paternal surname primer apellido or apellido paterno and a maternal surname segundo apellido or apellido materno. Colonial Hispanic America In the colonial period and nineteenth century, it was common to have between one and three given names followed by a second name with a "de" from in front.
