ESPINOSA-PATRON, Alejandro. Ideas for a Theory on the King Momo Celebration Based on the Triad of Communication, Culture and Carnival. Palabra Clave [online]. 2010, vol.13, n.1, pp. 175-188. ISSN 0122-8285.
Based on a study of the linguistic map of lexical variants in the Atlántico region of Colombia, this article attempts to identify the value of the annual carnival celebration as a tool for communication and social interaction, based on its nature as a cultural product. The triad of communication, culture and carnival, which embodies the particular dimensions of the inhabitants of the Caribbean coast, is described in this sense. The article establishes a multiple symphony of voices in which each author, from Eco, Barthes, Bourdieu, Canclini and Sinning to Zubieta looks at cultural value as a social product that prompts man to generate new processes for communication
