URBAN VERNACULAR OF MALAGA (V.U.M.) HUM392
This research group produces the oral corpus of the city of Malaga. From its study, a realistic image of the linguistic city is obtained and the patterns of use of the Malaga linguistic variety are compared with the spoken language of other Spanish and Latin American cities (studies of social dialectology, sociophonetic, morphosyntactic, pragmatic variation). Likewise, the urban variation patterns of Malaga are compared with those of different European speaking communities. In addition, studies are carried out on the lexicon available in Malaga with educational applications from sociolinguistic perspectives. In recent years, a pioneering line of research has been generated on studies of lexical centrality whose objective is the construction of community conceptual categories aimed at detecting gaps or perceptive distortions that, to a greater or lesser extent, may be affecting certain social groups.
