Spanish-speaking community and the nations of Latin America: linguo-political analysis

International relationships

The relevance of the study due to the growing influence of Latin American countries in international affairs, the active development of Russia’s ties with the region. In this context, this article aims to identify the role linguo-political association of Latin American countries in international political processes (as in historical perspective, and at the present stage). The author analyzes the data processes as an example of the struggle for the independence of Latin American countries, and at the present stage of registration of the Hispanic pole of world politics. The study is conducted on the basis of historical and generative method, with the involvement of linguistic methods and methodology of linguistic determinism (Sapir, Whorf). language is considered by us as the most important factor in the political process. For any political (and any other) community cannot function without a common language. That is, any social community is, above all, language community. Language change – is a kind of mirror of the socio-economic processes taking place in society, their quintessence. Therefore, it is the easiest language examples present a model of any historical or political process. It is shown that the linguistic related states create international political alliances on the basis of similar cultural and linguistic basis and, as a corollary, “addiction” to this or that ideology. However, this process begins and develops only in the confrontation of the “civilization” with other cultural and linguistic worlds. For example, “left turn” and the so-called “socialism of the XXI century” in Latin America was largely caused by the failure of neo-liberal ideology, which was seen as a product of “the Anglo-Saxon world.” it is shown that the preliminary disintegration of the Spanish-speaking linguistic community (Spain, Latin America) has its immediate outcome of the struggle for the independence of the American colonies from Spain and the creation of independent from the mother and from each other Hispanic American States. Now, at the present stage, to some extent, we can observe a revival of the old Latin American and Ibero-American unity to a new level (as, indeed, and between the UK and the US). Thus, it seems logical establishment of international political alliances of states on the basis of similar cultural and linguistic basis. Article submissions may be used for the analysis of prospects for the activities of international political alliances and serve the further development of linguo-political research.
