Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


"Chicano English in Context" is a modern, comprehensive study of Chicano English, a variety spoken by millions of Latinos in the US. It is also a study of ongoing sound change within an ethnic minority community. It briefly describes the phonology, syntax and semantics of this variety, and explores its crucial role in the construction of ethnic identity among young Latinos and Latinas. It also corrects misconceptions in how the general public views Chicano English.
