The Fundación del Español Urgente (Fundéu) will open in July in the Dominican Republic after reaching an agreement with the Guzmán Ariza Foundation Pro Dominican Academy of Letters signed in Madrid. “Fundéu GA” aims to promote the correct use of the Spanish language in Dominican media.
Fabio Guzman Ariza, president of the Guzmán Ariza Foundation Pro Dominican Academy of Letters and managing partner of the Guzmán Ariza law firm, told EFE that the agreement was “a dream come true”. The foundation has already helped the Dominican Academy of Letters in ventures like the publication of the Diccionario del español dominicano (2013) and the more recent Diccionario fraseológico del español dominicano (2016), the first on Dominican Spanish and the second on popular Dominican phrases.
Fundéu makes daily recommendations to the press and the general public on language issues.
