This paper advocates the close linkage among sociolinguistic awareness and language pluricentrity and calls for a deeper exploration of this relationship, due to the fact that speakers´perceptions towards different language varieties and variants is crucial in the setting and emergence of linguistic norms. In this sense, and, in the light of the data obtained from the attitudinal Project LIAS, Linguistic Identity and Attitudes in Spanish-speaking Latin America (Chiquito & Quesada-Pacheco eds. 2014), we study, in accordance with a quantitative methodology, the level of acceptance and legitimation that Spanish native speakers from different origins show towards the other Spanish varieties. It is only with a closer attention to the attitudinal component that it is possible to determine the degree of prestige that speakers grantnto or other Spanish national varieties.
