Description:

En respuesta al creciente interés de la sociolingüística actual por un
estudio ecológico de los fenómenos lingüísticos, este libro concede
especial atención a la influencia de diversos contextos culturales,
históricos, sociales y políticos. La primera parte incluye estudios sobre
el español en contacto con otras lenguas y entre sus distintas variedades
en las Américas. La segunda recoge varios análisis de ideologías del
lenguaje relacionadas sobre todo con el español en Estados Unidos. Por
último, los trabajos de la tercera parte aportan distintas perspectivas
legales, políticas y críticas sobre la educación bilingüe y la enseñanza
del español en Estados Unidos.

Consistent with sociolinguists’ growing interest in ecological approaches
to the study of language phenomena, this volume accords special attention
to the influence of cultural, historical, social and political contexts.
The first section focuses on language contact, including contact between
Spanish and other languages, as well as among multiple varieties of
Spanish. The second section consists of research on language ideologies,
especially ideologies regarding Spanish in the United States. The chapters
in the final section offer distinct legal, political and critical
perspectives on bilingual education and Spanish teaching in the United States.
