Title: Growing up Bilingual
Subtitle: Puerto Rican Children in New York
Written By: Ana Celia Zentella
URL: http://www.blackwellpublishing.com/book.asp?ref=9781557864079
Description:

This book provides an inside view of the social construction of
bilingualism in one of the largest and most disadvantaged Spanish-speaking
groups in the United States. It walks readers through a New York Puerto
Rican Community and describes the five varieties of Spanish and English
that constitute the community's bilingual and multi-dialectal repertoire,
the four major communication patterns that predominate in the homes of
twenty families with children, and the syntactic features and discourse
strategies of so-called "Spanglish".
