Association of Academies of the Spanish Language

The Association of Academies of the Spanish Language (Spanish: Asociación de Academias de la Lengua Española, ASALE) is an entity whose end is to work for the unity, integrity, and growth of the Spanish language.[2] It was created in Mexico in 1951 and represents the union of all the separate academies in the Spanish-speaking world. The association publishes reference works on the Spanish language and commemorative editions of Hispanic literature, among other publications.[3][4][5][6]

Through the initiative of then-president of Mexico Miguel Alemán Valdés, the first congress of academies convened with the purpose of maintaining the integrity of and fostering the further growth of Spanish.[4] The meeting was held from 23 April to 6 May 1951 and resulted in the creation of the association[7] and its permanent commission.[8] The Royal Spanish Academy (Spanish: Real Academia Española or RAE) was not present at the initial meeting but participated in the permanent commission.[9] Ever since the second congress convened in 1956, the RAE has been a regular participant.[citation needed]

In 2000 the association organised the School of Hispanic Lexicography and the Carolina Foundation to promote Spanish lexicography[citation needed], and together with the RAE, the association earned the Prince of Asturias Award for peace.[10]

An academy for Equatorial Guinea was created in 2013 and joined the association in 2016.[11]
