HelloModificar

Dear Amnon, sorry for replying so lately. I can suggest a couple of ideas that are strictly personal and that may o may not be shared with others users of this wikipedia.

With respect to Occitan I would emphasize (as it is often the case): _Its literature is a 1000 years old (withouht interruption through medieval, Renaissance, baroque, classical, romanticism, and the XXth century eras). _One Occitan authors received the Nobel Price (Mistral, of course). _Its Western dialects (gascon/bearnais) have been politically used in the Gascon-British Aquitaine (until the XVth century), in Bearn's administration, in Navarre's administration (despite he fact that Navarre is out of the Occitan speaking aera) and in the Basc province of Soule (ruled by Bearn). _It is spoken in three countries (France, Spain and Italy; and its official in the two latters). _Paradoxically, there has never been anything like an Occitan state. Separated (and very small) parts of Occitania have been independent in modern times though : Bearn, Marseille.

This means that is the language (and a common fight against French administration when it represents a threat to the language) that really defines Occitan's common identity. Occitania gathers many diferent and strong regional identities. Of course, the existence of a common language means that many other things have been shared throught centuries between the diferent people living within the Occitan aera.

Despite these facts, French people may completly ignore, very often, Occitania's existence. On the other hand, French people do know that there are other regional identites in France, such as Brittany and the Basc Country. Even among people sharing some kind of interests for Occitan language, many would simply ignore that between the troubadours and 1850, there is an important literary corpus.

My family used Occitan in Bearn for every legal act (contracts, mariages, debts, acquisitions) untill the end of the XVIIIth century (although, French was also used from time to time). At the end of the XIX century, many neighbourgs and relatives emigrated. Sometimes to California, but generally to Argentina when they used to practice Occitan when they meet again. Among elderly people Occitan was used until the 60s in Argentina. As a child I heard old Occitan speaker in France but I really started to acquire the language once I studied it, with books.

I hope this might help,

Good luck,

Sincerely,
