Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2006 im Fachbereich Romanistik - Spanische Sprache, Literatur, Landeskunde, observe: 1,0, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München (Romanistik), Veranstaltung: Spanische Sprachgeschichte, eight Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Die Gramática de l. a. lengua castellana (GC) von Antonio de Nebrija (1441 – 1522) erschien im Jahre 1492 und ist eines der bedeutendsten dokumentierenden Werke, das die Entwicklung der spanischen Sprache aufzeigt. Mit dieser umfassenden Ausgabe schuf Nebrija die erste gedruckte Grammatik einer romanischen Sprache. Die von ihm festgelegte Terminologie und beschriebenen Sprachphänomene haben teilweise bis heute Gültigkeit.
Die GC ist deswegen so wichtig, weil sie in der Latein-dominierten Welt des 15. Jahrhunderts zum ersten Mal einer Volgare eine Regelhaftigkeit zugesteht und deren Untersuchung und Festlegung ein ganzes Buch widmet. Bis zu diesem Zeitpunkt wurde davon ausgegangen, dass nur die klassischen Sprachen wie Latein oder Griechisch feststehende Regeln besitzen. „Die Volkssprache galt dagegen noch als rudo y desierto (,rauh und ungepflegt’)“ (Bollée, Neumann-Holzschuh (2003). Auch wenn die heutige Forschung den historischen Wert der GC erkannt hat, so muss betont werden, dass Nebrija für diese Leistung zu Lebzeiten keine Anerkennung bekam. Nach der Erstausgabe im Jahre 1492 wurde sie „im gesamten Siglo de Oro […] kaum beachtet und die nächste Auflage erschien erst im 18. Jh.“ (Bollée, Neumann-Holzschuh (2003). Für Nebrija, einen anerkannten Grammatiker der lateinischen Sprache, eine ungewohnte Erfahrung. Selbst die heutige Forschung bezieht häufig nur einzelne Aspekte der GC ein und polemisiert vor allem gegen den Prolog Nebrijas, dem häufig Nationalismus vorgeworfen wird, obwohl Nebrija und sein Leben sonst keinerlei Anzeichen für solch eine Vermutung liefern.
In dieser Hausarbeit werden die Gründe untersucht, wegen denen die GC zu Nebrijas Zeiten nicht die verdiente Anerkennung bekam. Dafür ist es notwendig, den Zeitgeist Spaniens im 15. Jahrhundert zu beleuchten sowie wichtige Einflüsse auf Nebrija zu zeigen, zu denen ganz besonders der Humanismus gehörte. Es soll gezeigt werden, dass Nebrijas Ansichten zum Kastilischen und sein Sprachbewusstsein für seine Zeit verfrüht waren. Er battle gewissermaßen ein Trendsetter, dessen Weitsicht sich erst in der Entwicklung des Spanischen im Siglo de Oro bewiesen hat, als sich das Spanische ganz vom Lateinischen emanzipierte.
