Lexical interference between Galician and Castilian has resulted in deep-seated convictions regarding traditional functions and domains. In 1982, standard Galician was introduced to replace Castilian as the official, institutionalised language. The roles of both languages are traced within the education system, the media and local government and an evaluation is made of current attitudes. Consideration is given to how far assimilation and interference have been halted. Conclusions indicate that younger respondents reassign values and tokens to both varieties due to institutionalisation. Notions of language loyalty are prevalent as the community aspires to preserve Galician as a symbol of regional identity.
