"Falar diferente" e conservar um geoleto vernáculo: notas sobre a importância da fonética no fortalecimento dos princípios da identidade de G. Breakwell no caso da comunidade d'a fala de Xálima (Cáceres, Espanha)
[Resumen extraído de la fuente original]
This paper presents some preliminary comments aiming to explain the vitality of the geolect of Val de Xálima (Cáceres province, Spain), the so‑called a fala. Having in consideration that recently the community of Xálima has faced various sociolinguistic phenomena which could have suppressed its dialectal particularities in the linguistic convergence with Castilian, the author aims to describe a process of reinforcement of the local ethnic identity due to the perceptual salience of the hypothetical "non belonging phonetic features" resulting in the preservation of the geolect. It is also proposed to integrate the factor called by the author: "to speak different" to the Identity Process Theory of G. Breakwell.
