Abstract:

Spanish Speakers in the USA explores the relationship between language and
culture both as specific to Latinos and as a generalizable example of
linguistic and cultural diversity. The concept of identity is explored, with
special attention to culturally embedded ideas about 'race' and ethnicity, and
how language contributes to identity construction. Also addressed are
attitudes and beliefs about the Spanish language, and the people who speak it,
as they are revealed in online communication, public discourse, films and
television. Linguistic consequences of language contact are discussed, showing
how so-called 'Spanglish' is both socially significant and linguistically
mundane. The final chapter illuminates how the education of Spanish speakers
in the USA school system is linked to issues surrounding Latino identities and
ideologies about Spanish.
