The conference ‘Neofalantismo e calidade da lingua’ takes place
November 2020
Faculty of Philology (UDC)

The meeting awoke great interest in the Galician Studies academic field.

The event was organised by professors Xosé Ramón Freixeiro Mato and Xosé Manuel Sánchez Rei, as well as by the doctoral candidate María Fernández Zas as the secretary (all members of ILLA), and it dealt with the relationships between people that start speaking Galician from other languages, especially Spanish, and the linguistic quality of the varieties they use. The meeting was endorsed by professors from the University of A Coruña, Lisbon, München Porto, Santiago de Compostela and Vigo.

The encounter featured the interventions of specialists from Galician universities and other academic fields, such as Fernando Ramallo, Xosé Manuel Sánchez Rei, Vítor Vaqueiro and Deirdre Barry Murphy. Xosé Luís Regueira was not able to participate for reasons out of his control.

The exchange of opinions and debates after the interventions characterised the overall development of the encounter, which had a good attendance given the restrictions imposed by the current sanitary situation.
