Abstract

Aragonese is listed by UNESCO as an endangered language. Due to the number of speakers (around 10,000) and the sociolinguistic situation it finds itself in (fragmentation, language desertion, lack of teaching projects, etc.), Aragonese is the language with the lowest levels of vitality in south-east Europe and that with the fewest resources and possibilities to face up to the future. This article studies the advances made via the media offered by new technologies, and the web in particular; the dangers deriving from these, and the possibilities for development arising from the application of ICTs in a possible and necessary strategic planning for the language, as a case study of growing vulnerability. The underlying reflection in this article is of great value for other minority languages, and their planning and development in terms of the internet.
