This is the first book to formulate a theoretical framework to explain the relation between verbal interaction and societal factors. Topics include: the Chicano Population as a lingual and national minority residing in the Southwest; speakers who continue to use Spanish as their informal language; Chicano Spanish in terms of varieties, fields of discourse and participants; and code-switching.
“A solid contribution to the field. For the first time we have a book…with a consistent theoretical frame of reference coupled with important original empirical analysis.”–Fernando Peñalosa, California State University, Long Beach
