The Institute of Valencian Studies has participated, representing the Valencian language and culture, in the annual meeting of the European Alliance of Regional Languages on the weekend of 8 and 9 April in Provence. In the assembly, different projects have been proposed to defend the different cultures represented within the alliance, such as the Bearnese, the Gascon, the Provencal, the Nissarda, the Neapolitan and the Valencian.
The Institute also had a stand at the Forum de les Associacions Provençals where we exhibited the latest works published and a sample of typical Valencian products to make our culture known among the many visitors to the forum.
The European Alliance of Minority Languages has been established at European level, headed by the Provençal language, and more specifically, by the Collectif Prouvènço. Within this framework, the Institute of Valencian Studies has been constituted as representative of the Valencian Language at European level.
The constitution of the Alliance came from the debates that dealt with the problem of the recognition of minority languages within the national framework of each country.
The Institute of Valencian Studies states that in the face of the recent declarations of some institutions, it will continue working to create and disseminate the Valencian language, and that it will continue using the "Normes d'El Puig" because it considers them to be the most appropriate for our language.
This codification is the fruit of a rigorous work on the part of Valencian philologists and scholars and is based on living talk and the Valencian, classical and modern scriptural tradition.
This orthography continues the path started by the scholar Josep Nebot Perez and by the philologist Luis Fullana, the best specialist in the Valencian language of the first half of the 20th century and an inescapable historical reference.
