[LE}– ‘Precariado’ es un neologismo válido

15/04/2013

Precariado es un neologismo válido, respetuoso con las normas académicas sobre formación de palabras.

Puede definirse como ‘sector social que se ve sometido a inestabilidad e incertidumbre laboral prolongadas, y que no percibe ingresos o éstos son bajos’.

De origen incierto, puede considerarse un acrónimo de precario y proletariado, opción mayoritaria en otros países, o interpretarse simplemente como un sustantivo derivado de precario, del mismo modo que, a partir de proletario, voluntario o notario, se crean proletariado, voluntariado o notariado con idea de clase, conjunto o colectivo, de acuerdo con las definiciones del Diccionario Académico.

En España, el precariado engloba un sector social constituido por personas de muy diversa condición y que no pertenecen necesariamente al proletariado, como desempleados, universitarios con salarios mínimos y contratos temporales, nativos o inmigrantes empleados sin contrato, jubilados con pensiones mínimas, jóvenes sin recursos para acceder a una vivienda o parejas sin medios para formar una familia.

[Hum}– The Euro English

The European Commission has just announced an agreement whereby English will be the official language of the European Union rather than German, which was the other possibility.

As part of the negotiations, the British Government conceded that English spelling had some room for improvement and has accepted a five year phase-in plan that would become known as “Euro-English”.

  1. In the first year, “s” will replace the soft “c”. Sertainly this will make sivil servants jump with joy.
  2. The hard “c” will be dropped on favour of “k”. This should klear up konfusion, and keyboard can have one less letter.
  3. There will be growing public enthusiasm in the sekond year when the troublesome “ph” will be replaced with “f”. This will make words like fotograf 20% shorter.
  4. In the third year, public akseptanse of the new spelling kan be expekted to reach the stage where more kompllkated changes are possible.
  5. Governments will enkourage the removal of double letters which have always ben a deterent to akurate speling.
