Isela Ramirez's comment, September 21, 2012 11:05 PM
Este artículo es muy interesante porque habla de cómo hicieron la investigación y los resultados que encontraron. Casi todos los participantes decidieron hablar en español, pero no encontraron una relación con la comunidad y la lengua que utilizaron. Lo que usaron para determinar la preservación del español fue basada en su preferencia de hablar en español. Así como hemos leído y discutido en clase, en la investigación se dieron cuenta de la alternancia de códigos. Por ejemplo si no sabían la palabra en español la decían en inglés. Algunos de los entrevistados dijeron que el español se estaba perdiendo. Un ejemplo es que uno de los entrevistados dijo que su nieto no puede decir la “r.” Una de las soluciones que se menciona para preservar el español es que la población se entere de estos cambios y de las alteraciones de la lengua. También otra solución es hablarle a las nuevas generaciones en español. Espero empezar mi investigación la próxima semana para comparar los resultados.
