Description

The focus of this session will be to discuss whether or not a common variety can be argued for Ibero-Romance medieval languages and if so, how each variety was configured, either by spontaneous koineization or by deliberate standardization processes, or perhaps both. Papers are invited to discuss issues such as what type of variation is present in Ibero-medieval texts and how modern scholars have come to the understanding of what features characterize and define such languages and varieties, how conventional linguistic varieties have been defined and what processes and ideologies made them reach such conclusions in the face of the immense variation present in medieval Ibero-Romance texts.
