Orígenes y fines

La Real Academia Española se fundó en 1713 por iniciativa de Juan Manuel Fernández Pacheco, marqués de Villena. Felipe V aprobó su constitución el 3 de octubre de 1714 y la colocó bajo su «amparo y Real Protección».

Su propósito fue el de «fijar las voces y vocablos de la lengua castellana en su mayor propiedad, elegancia y pureza». Se representó tal finalidad con un emblema formado por un crisol en el fuego con la leyenda Limpia, fija y da esplendor, obediente al propósito enunciado de combatir cuanto alterara la elegancia y pureza del idioma, y de fijarlo en el estado de plenitud alcanzado en el siglo XVI.

La institución ha ido adaptando sus funciones a los tiempos que le ha tocado vivir. Actualmente, y según lo establecido por el artículo primero de sus Estatutos, la Academia «tiene como misión principal velar porque los cambios que experimente la Lengua Española en su constante adaptación a las necesidades de sus hablantes no quiebren la esencial unidad que mantiene en todo el ámbito hispánico».

Juluque,

Here's our translator's English version for those who would like to know the information, but whose Spanish abilities fail them. It needs polished in a few spots, but I would rather you did it, than I try to, as I wouldn't wish to alter your meaning.

The Royal Spanish Academy was founded in 1713 by initiative of Juan Manuel Fernández Pacheco, Marquis of Villena. Felipe V approved its constitution on 3 October 1714 and placed it under his "protection and royal protection.

Its purpose was to "fix the voices and words of the Castilian language in the most propriety, elegance and purity." It represented that end with an emblem consisting of a crucible in the fire with the legend Clean, fixes and gives splendor, obedient to the purpose set out to fight as alter the elegance and purity of language, and to fix the state of fulfillment achieved in the sixteenth century.

The institution has adapted its functions to the times he lives. Currently, and as established by the first article of its statutes, the Academy 'main mission is to ensure that the changes you experience the Spanish language in its constant adaptation to the needs of its speakers do not break the essential unity that keeps all Hispanic area.
