  • Abstract
  • This article aims to answer the question of which language was used for the teaching of socio-pragmatic norms in nineteenth-century Catalonia. Within a corpus of 51 etiquette books published in Catalonia during the 19th century, we find only two written in Catalan. Our analysis shows that the decisive factors for the choice of language were the circumstances of the publication and the target audience. The two manuals were aimed at a monolingual audience, namely the peasant and working classes, respectively. We conclude that the Überdachung of Catalan by Spanish was a slow process, which had not yet reached all parts of society at the end of the 19th century.
