Fundéu Guzmán Ariza began its operations on July 19 with an opening ceremony held at the JW Marriot Hotel in Santo Domingo.
Fabio J. Guzmán Ariza, president of Fundéu Guzmán Ariza, announced that the institution will issue recommendations about proper Spanish usage to the Dominican media and the general public. These recommendations will be taken from texts published in the Dominican media, as well as quotes from radio and tv shows.
Mr. Guzmán Ariza also explained that the launching of Fundeú has been made possible by the financial support of the Guzmán Ariza law firm, the institutional support of Fundéu BBVA in Spain, the advice of the Dominican Academy of Letters, and the collaboration of the Spanish news agency EFE.
Fundéu Guzmán Ariza will post three weekly recommendations on its web site (www.fundeu.do), which will be sent by email to subscribers. Users may also consult Fundéu on any language issue through its web site.
