What CILE left us

The city of Cordoba hosted the International Congress of the Spanish Language (CILE). And his past left us thousands of marks. We tell you which ones.

How we talk

The International Congress of the Spanish Language (CILE) passed through Cordoba. With all its humor and love unfolded around the city. This is a forum about our language, where thousands of issues are discussed.  Including language , among other issues, was the focus of this year's agenda. Also the arrival of this event promoted research projects on the Spanish of Cordoba. About which we know a lot about his idioms and his humorous appearance. But we don't know much about formal issues. In addition, studies of the “Cordovan language” expanded throughout the provincial territory. with high scope and diversity.

CILE is held every three years, in different spanish-speaking countries. From its beginning in 1997, until this year, it passed through Mexico, Puerto Rico, Spain, Panama Colombia, Chile and Argentina. It took place in Argentina twice : in Rosario in 2004 and this 2019, in Cordoba.

 But what happened?  *

In the Cordovan city caused stir. And the impact wasn't just good. The city was all disguised with monuments and parts that had not been done for years. That caused a lot of criticism. On the other hand, the symbolic force of CILE is a lot. And some faculties (such as Philosophy and Humanities) sang retrick . Organizing a Counter-Congress entitled “I International Meeting: Linguistic Rights as Human Rights” . With ideas about the language much more progressive, including and diverse. The political importance of CILE is very important. And let you see how many power relations are reflected in the use of our language. It is not innocent that the CILE organization is linked to institutions such as the Royal Spanish Academy (SAR) and the Spanish monarchy. Who killed thousands of world views and languages, imposing their own, over the original ones. That's why this whole event generated to stir. Inside the academic world, and outside too.

 After his passage, CILE left us...  

While CILE is a very closed forum aimed at the training of specialists, this year there were many events that called the whole town to participate. Many renowned personalities, humor, music and art, free shows and talks. A festival of the word was also held. And CILE, moreover, literally painted the city with poetry. Today, Cordoba has monuments that lead us to reflect on the strength of our language, the value of the word and poetry. with phrases of songs in every pedestrian. These are the interventions that call on the Cordobese day by day to  claim us,  and to be cordobeeesazos, even if some want the opponent.
