Analyse des facteurs de transmission du basque, du catalan et du galicien en Espagne

Abstract : In the past, the various successive spanish authorities have tried to unify the country, promoting the Castilian culture at the expense of local identity features, and by prohibiting the use of regional languages. But since the late 1980s, new laws have to declare the nature of some co-official regional languages, and laws of « linguistic normalization » will regulate the use of languages in education. They questioned the effectiveness of a bilingual education system, and consequently on the maintenance, or decline, the importance of the role of family in the dissemination of languages, following the introduction of regional languages in education. This article will highlight that the government has been partially substituted for the family in the transmission of cultural heritage that represent the regional languages by requiring their learning in school. That is why the proportion of people who master the language in these autonomous communities is increasing, including among non-natives of these Communities.
