Keywords: hegemony | pluricentrism | linguistic teaching

The syncretic cultural identity, in which the Spanish language and its linguistic hegemony are grounded and have reflected its political hegemony, led Spain to take on a predominant role in standardization over the centuries. However, the present situation of the Spanish language is characterized by pluricentrism covering the vast territory in which the language is spoken. This means that a number of cen- ters have set up prestigious standard models providing norms for a country or region. Therefore, a fair enactment of this polycentrism requires national norms, different ways of codification of the Spanish language, answers to geographical and social forms which have split after a common departure and the idea that the varieties of the Spanish language fulfill speakers’ different expressive requirements and help to enhance national identities, in the face of the domination of the peninsular model. This point of view must guide linguistic research, methodology in lexicography, school grammar, translation of foreign languages and especially the teaching of Spanish as L2.
