The Castilian Conspiracy (second edition)

In 1925, the Royal Spanish Academy (Real Academia Española) betrayed its protégé, the Castilian language, which has always been —and continues to be— the most widely used Spanish language used worldwide. After 14 properly named editions of its Dictionary and 433 years after the publication of the first Castilian Grammar book, the Royal Spanish Academy removed the proper name from the cover of the Dictionary, as part of a plot where Francisco Franco would later become a co-conspirator. Since 1978, the Royal Spanish Academy has been acting in violation of the Spanish Constitution and has been disrespecting the national heritage.


The Castilian Conspiracy reveals the uncensored truth about the most widely used Spanish language. Through personal studies and anecdotes, quotations, historical facts, little-know rules, and unique observations, author Allan Tépper unfolds while he proposes improvements for the language and its speakers. Now, the second edition has even more proof than before.
