Register Aspects of Literacy in Spanish
Spanish academic register is here explored in terms of M. A. K. Halliday's concepts of Mode, Field, and Tenor. It is found that striking differences between everyday Spanish and academic Spanish are related to the intrinsic nature of literacy and to academic uses of language. Important aspects of these differences are explored, and consequences for minority language maintenance are discussed.
