ResumoThe Aldahitz project aims to analyze the processes of changing linguistic habits, from Spanish into Basque. The project started in 2009 and we have developed it since then at Sociolinguistics Cluster under the direction of Professor Pello Jauregi (UPV-EHU).

The first step was the research done in the family domain (2009). There, we analyzed cases of couples that had changed the language they used in their everyday life from Spanish to Basque. The second step of this research-line was carried out in the workplace (2011). Cases of workers that had changed their every-day language while communicating with their colleagues were analyzed in a qualitative way, trying to identify the common features or the keys of these processes of change.

Based on the conclusions of the 2011 study (available here only in Basque), we have developed a methodology called “Eusle” within Aldahitz project. The aim of this methodology is to facilitate or incite this kind of changing processes in a work environment.

The methodology was applied in thirteen different organizations between 2013 and 2016, and there was an increase in the use of Basque among groups of workmates in every case.

In this paper we will show the principal features of the “Eusle” methodology as well as the results of this investigation. We have published the results in two volumes, in 2015 and 2017, which are currently available only in Basque.
