The Central Bank of the Argentine Republic presented this Friday a guide for inclusive communication, in which it recognizes inclusive language “as a valid resource in communications, files, forms, documentation and productions of the institution.”
“The objective is to gradually migrate from the masculinization of language to the incorporation of all genders,” explained the monetary entity in a statement.
The RAE understands inclusive language as that “in which express references to women are made exclusively through words of the feminine gender”, as well as the use of “collective nouns of person, whether female or male” and of nominal terms that include both sexes in their designation (for example, all Spanish people).
The rector of the Spanish language, on the other hand, rejects the use of the ‘x’ and the ‘@’ as forms of inclusive language and whose use is quite widespread, especially among the youngest.
Argentine President Alberto Fernández himself appeals to “todes” in his speeches to the population.
The Central Bank guide offers options for naming collectives and groups, for expressing positions and positions, examples on the use of articles and pronouns, impersonal forms and recommendations on the use of images. For example, instead of “the manager” she recommends the use of “the manager.” And instead of “the applicants” should be expressed “the / the applicants”.
The presentation of the guide occurs a few days after the Banco Nación de Argentina, the most important public bank in the country, established a quota of no less than 1% of the staff that must be occupied by transvestites, transsexuals and transgender people.
