DARÍO VILLANUEVA, RAE PRESIDENT

The director of the Royal Academy, Darío Villanueva, has assured that he doesn’t see at this moment the “slightest possibility” of reforming anything in the Constitution, “not because there are not things that can be reformed, things much more transcendent than the language”, but because there is no political climate for it.

Thus, Villanueva has opined in an interview with EFE about the request of the Government to the RAE for this institution to conduct a study of the language of the Constitution with the aim of adapting it to an inclusive language for women, as announced by the Minister of Equality and Vice President of the Government, Carmen Calvo.

“It’s a Constitution written in Spanish, and Spanish has a grammar that is the decantation of centuries of language” that has endowed it with two genres. And as one of the principles common to all Romance languages is the language economy, there is a gender not marked by which the masculine includes the feminine”, Villanueva.

Listen MP3 (July 17, 2018):

Read translation of the transcription:

“I don’t see at this moment the slightest possibility of reforming anything in the Constitution. Not because there are not things that can be reformed, that there are things, and things even more transcendent than language, that is, fundamental issues.”
