"Many mushrooms, few names"

Monday, 14 November, 2022

The Professor and member of the University Institute of Textual Analysis and Applications, María Teresa Cáceres Lorenzo together with the researcher assigned to the Institute of Environmental Studies and Natural Resources (i-UNAT) Marcos Salas Pascual have published a article in The Conversation, with the title "Many mushrooms, few names".

In this article they analyze the etymological richness of Spanish when it comes to naming the different species of fungi and mushrooms that exist throughout Spain, and the cultural differences between the north and south of the country . The species are similar but are not consumed in the same way, the authors indicate that the areas with the greatest setera tradition coincide with those that have their own languages, so the general names of the mushrooms have "a very slow and little rooted diffusion" .
