Title: Latino Language and Literacy in Ethnolinguistic Chicago
Edited By: Marcia Farr
Description:

This volume--along with its companion "Ethnolinguistic Chicago: Language
and Literacy in the City's Neighborhoods"--fills an important gap in
research on Chicago, one of the most linguistically diverse cities in the
United States and home to one of the largest and most diverse Latino
communities, and more generally, on language use in globalized metropolitan
areas. The focus is on the related issues of language and ethnicity.
