At the beginning of the twentieth century the trend towards nationalism brought about a qualitative leap in the use of the language. The "Irmandades da Fala" or "Brotherhoods of the Language" were created to defend, dignify and cultivate the language and Galicia is included in the League of Nations in Geneva. In 1920 appears the Journal "Nós" aiming to eliminate the folkloric nature from the Galician culture by updating it, standardising it, making it widely known and keeping it in touch with the European thinking. Galician language is used for translations and scientific subjects.

A Nosa Terra was the
newspaper created by
the Irmandades da Fala
to spread their ideas.
