This volume is composed of papers presented at the 1st. International Conference on the
Asturian Language, which took place on 27 – 28 April 2022 at the Universidad Autónoma
de Madrid. Said papers cover a wide range of disciplines related to the subject: education,
historical linguistics, syntax, phonology, lexis, sociolinguistics, and literature, all focused
upon the three central themes around which the conference revolved: the distinctiveness
of the Asturian language, its intimate relationship with the Asturian identity, and
the absolute necessity of insisting upon its status as an official Romance language so as
to ensure its preservation and revitalization. On the occasion of the imminent public
debate upon the question of its official status, this volume aims to serve as a tribute to
all those who made it possible to reach this crucial stage. Hopefully it will also become
a contributing factor in conferring upon Asturian the prominence it deserves.
