Max Wheeler: "LAPAO is the product of a certain political way of thinking which insists on the situation conforming to its doctrines, and not the other way round."

The British Catalanista Max Wheeler has won the 23rd edition of the Ramon Llull International Prize. He centred his PhD studies on the generative phonology of Catalan and since then he has devoted himself to it exclusively. Until his recent retirement he was a Linguistics lecturer at various universities and he has published numerous far-reaching studies with a great academic impact. Known for his defence of the linguistic unity of Catalan, he has been vocal in defending his criticism of LAPAO.
