Spanish Speakers in the USA (MM Textbooks): Janet M. Fuller: Amazon.com: Kindle Store

Spanish Speakers in the USA (MM Textbooks): Janet M. Fuller: Amazon.com: Kindle Store
Yuly Asencion's insight:

“Spanish Speakers in the USA” is a textbook that originated from the author’s class on “Spanish in the USA” and is therefore intended for a college level course on the topic. The book is written completely in English and examples in Spanish are translated and/or explained, so no previous knowledge of Spanish is required. The book focuses mostly on language attitudes and ideologies, and how they relate to language practices. Rather than presenting demographics, geographical distributions, or detailed characterizations of the different varieties of Spanish in the USA, the book presents different concepts and theories that deal with language ideologies, illustrating them with the case of Spanish in the USA. (by Irene Checa-García - http://linguistlist.org/issues/24/24-2015.html)
