What the ZEA is?

The Society for the Andalusian Language Study (Z.E.A.) is made up of a group of people with different humanistic backgrounds (linguistics, philology, anthropology, history, journalism, etc.) who live inside and outside Andalusia, sharing a similar concern for the future of the linguistic heritage of our land.

The ZEA’s immediate objectives are: to fight against the prejudices that still hinder the normal use of the Andalusian language, to seek social and institutional recognition, in addition to devising the necessary tools for its literary development.

The basic tasks of the members of the Society are: to study everything related on the various Andalusian dialects, to learn, disseminate or give out existing knowledge and to contribute −as far as possible− to broaden and strengthen the linguistic awareness of its speakers. In such a way, then, that its main missions will be:

a) The organization of scientific congresses and literary meetings in which the Andalusian language or andalú is taken as the axis of analysis and primary work.

b) The call for cultural and social events in favor of the dignity and promotion of the Andalusian language.

c) The publishing of magazines, books, brochures and websites in accordance with the objectives of the association.
