Abstract [es]

En este estudio se analizan las actitudes lingüísticas hacia la variedad canaria en comparación

con la variedad español peninsular considerado estándar de veinte estudiantes universitarios

en Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. La investigadora utiliza una versión modificada del método

matched guise que consiste en una grabación de cuatro versiones de un mismo texto leído por

dos hablantes de la variedad canaria y dos hablantes de la variedad español peninsular

considerado estándar. Los informantes escuchan el texto grabado y contestan

consecutivamente un cuestionario, evaluando las voces de la grabación. Según el resultado

obtenido existe una diferencia entre la valoración de la dimensión de estatus y la dimensión de

solidaridad. Los informantes valoran más positivamente a la variedad español peninsular

estándar al nivel estatus, mostrando actitudes desfavorables hacia la variedad canaria. En la

dimensión de solidaridad se manifiestan actitudes contradictorias hacia la variedad canaria,

indicando una posible oposición entre una variedad culta y una vulgar.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to analyze the language attitudes of twenty university students in

Las Palmas de Gran Canaria towards the Canarian variety of Spanish compared to standard

Spanish. The investigator uses a modified matched-guise technique to test the subjects´

responses to speech samples from four speakers reading the same text: two Canarian speaking

voices and two voices speaking the standard Spanish variety. The subjects listen to the

recording and thereafter answer a questionnaire that evaluates their language attitudes. The

results show that prestige and solidarity are evaluated variously. In the dimension of prestige

the respondents held more positive attitudes towards the standard variety of Spanish while the

Canarian variety received less positive virtues and the respondents evaluated their own variety

in an unfavorable way. In the dimension of solidarity the attitudes towards the Canarian

variety are contradictory, indicating a possible division between the judgement of an educated

variety and a vulgar variety.
