CALERO VAQUERA, María Luisa. Ideology and linguistics discourse: the ethnorthography as a subdiscipline of glotopolitics. Boletín de Filología [online]. 2010, vol.45, n.2, pp. 31-48. ISSN 0718-9303.

Numerous studies have focused on the (inevitable?) ideological bias present in lexicographic works -as approached by Ethnolexicography- and, to a lesser extent, in grammatical treatises -what is now called Ethnogrammar. Our aim in this paper is to contribute a review of an orthographic handbook to that ethnographic area, entitled Plan concéntrico de ortografía -written in the second half of the 20th c. by Nicasio H. García, an inspector of Primary Education, and published in Montevideo in 1947 (2nd edition). A number of textual features in this book reflect the specific political and socio-cultural context. In the present study, therefore, we put forward the creation of a new sub-discipline, akin to those already mentioned, which can be named Ethnorthography, also included in the super-ordinate Glotopolitics, the science that addresses the various ways in which society acts upon languages.

Palabras clave : ethnolinguistics; glotopolitics; orthography; didactics of Spanish.
