Institut d'Estudis Catalans


Any modern language that aspires to be socially useful and have future prospects needs to meet two requirements: it must have rules which are shared by users of the language and it must be used extensively and normally in all areas of society, which we may refer to as the standardisation and normalisation of a language, respectively. Catalan has organisations that monitor these two aspects, focusing on the establishment of standards (regulation of the language corpus) and the consolidation of its use (determining the status of the language).
