dc.description.abstractenglish València (officially Comunitat Valenciana) is a territory in eastern Spain inhabited by five million people where both Catalan (officially known there as valencià, Valencian) and Castilian (i.e. Spanish) are official languages. The official use of Catalan (València's traditional language) was banned in this territory in 1707, with the advent of the Bourbon dynasty. In 1983, sis years after democracy arrived into Spain, the official use and the teaching of this language was restored. Even though today it is one of the two official languages in València, Catalan/Valencian has not achieved the prestige and social use there that it has in Catalonia or in the Balearic Islands. In order to explain this fact, we need to look back at the Spanish transition to democracy period (1977-1983), when the identity and language of València became a matter for heated political and social dispute. As a result, the Valencian identity 'and, particularly, its most characteristic and distinctive trait, València's language' was significantly weakened. However, in spite of these linguistic and identity conflicts in València, it must be acknowledged that the Catalan/Valencian language has made significant legal advances in València from 1983. es
