Abstract [en]

The general objective of our study is to investigate the attitudes expressed by young people from Bogotá towards the coexisting Spanish varieties. Specifically, it seeks to investigate the differences of linguistic attitudes from the categories of status and solidarity. The particular speech of young people in Ciudad Bolivar is studied as a factor of sociocultural identity. This study was conducted among a small sample of young people in Ciudad Bolívar, a popular suburb in Bogotá, Colombia. The sample consists of 38 informants between the ages of 11 to 24. A sociolinguistic survey consisting of five parts was used. In the first part, the sociodemographic data was collected, in the second part, a matched guise test was applied to evaluate the acctitudinal differences towards the varieties of Spanish, in the third part the informants answered in writing open questions. In the fourth part, a Likert scale of acceptability was applied to measure the degree of acceptability towards sociolinguistic items. The last part the informants express their acceptance of words and expressions in everyday speech contexts. The informants were divided into three groups: two groups of young students from public schools and a group of young people from a public park. The results of the analysis indicate that attitudes towards the standard variety are positive in formal and educational contexts. In informal contexts and comradeship contexts young people express very positive attitudes towards a non-standard youth variant. The results allow to recognize that this alternative variant of Spanish is characterized by the use of very particular words and expressions invented by the young people. The alternative variant is used as an element of identity and difference. Our research is an invitation to undertake more ambitious studies by expanding the population sample.
