La competencia gramatical

Según El Diccionario de términos clave de ELE, la competencia gramatical (también llamadacompetencia lingüística) es la capacidad de una persona para producir enunciados gramaticales en una lengua, es decir, enunciados que respeten las reglas de la gramática de dicha lengua en todos sus niveles (vocabulario, formación de palabras y oraciones, pronunciación y semántica). Sabemos, además, que lengua y habla no siempre van por los mismos carriles y que, ante las dudas, conviene recurrir a los especialistas: la RAE, la Fundéu,, solo por mencionar algunos de los varios recursos en línea.


De la solapa “Recomendaciones y dudas” de la Fundéu (Fundación del español urgente), elegimos algunos consejos que hacen a la adquisición de la competencia lingüística.

1. a día de hoy, al día de hoy

Debe evitarse la expresión a día de hoy, al día de hoy cuando se quiera expresar que un suceso determinado ocurre en el mismo día o en la actualidad. La Fundéu BBVA, que trabaja con el asesoramiento de la Real Academia Española, recomienda usar otras formas, como las que propone el Diccionario panhispánico de dudas: hoy por hoy, hasta hoy, hasta ahora,hasta este momento, etc.; o, sencillamente, hoy, en el día de hoy, hoy en día, ahora o en la actualidad.!

What’s the good word?

The old year has gone; a new one is upon us already. While some things haven’t changed with the coming of 2014, there is a rather long list of hackneyed words from 2013 that people would like evicted from our vocabulary this year.

It has been named ‘word of the year’ by The Oxford Dictionary but even those who use social networking sites say ‘selfie’ (a photograph taken of and by oneself to be uploaded on a social media site) is on everyone’s nerves. YOLO (you only live once) and hashtags, again popularised by social media sites are receiving much flak. “These aren’t words you say out loud,” says collegian Rohit D’ Souza who adds, “Instagram sure is a popular app but people who constantly post pictures of their food on Facebook and Twitter really annoy me. Foodstagramming must be banned and so should the words Photobomb and Throwback Thursday. Also, I don’t get why people use random so loosely. On Facebook, every other person has an album titled random.”

In every area there are words that were popular in 2013 that people would like to discard. As far as the dance/music scene goes, thanks to Miley Cyrus, the word ‘twerk’ though added to the Oxford Dictionary, is among those words people across the word would love banished this year.

Milan Vohra, advertising professional and author of Tick-tock we’re 30, says: “If there is one word I'm severely allergic to, it is awesome. It is a one word cliché that is used much too generically. It shows a person is just plain lazy or lacks the vocabulary to find a more appropriate word. ‘Anyways’, ‘like totally’ and ‘isn't that the sweetest?’ are other phrases I detest.”!

Zuma pays up for new Zulu Bible - KwaZulu-Natal | IOL News |

Durban - The Roman Catholic Church and the Jacob Zuma Foundation have embarked on a mission to ensure the correct translation of the Bible from the original Greek and Hebrew to Zulu.

The undertaking is expected to take at least three years, to ensure that it is accurate and that there are no omissions – as happened when it was translated from English.

On Sunday, President Jacob Zuma donated R500 000 on behalf of the foundation to complete the task started by Bishop Mlungisi Dlungwane of Mariannhill in KwaZulu-Natal.

He attended mass at the Mariannhill Mission with businessman Patrice Motsepe, MEC for Education Peggy Nkonyeni, MEC for Agriculture Meshack Radebe and eThekwini mayor James Nxumalo.

Zuma applauded the 32 people who would undertake the task, saying it would change people’s lives.

He commended the church for its role in protecting the community from poverty, adding that it also played a role in hospitals and schools.

“The Bible is a holy book. That is why believers should get the gist of it as it is, and it needs to be translated properly,” Zuma said.

“Zulu should not climb on top of other languages, but what is written should be translated directly from that language into Zulu.”

Zuma encouraged business people to contribute money to the project.!
