Title: Chicano English in Context
Written By: Carmen Fought
Description:

Chicano English in Context is the first modern, comprehensive study of
Chicano English, a variety spoken by millions of Latinos in the U.S. It is also one of the first studies of ongoing sound change within an ethnic minority community. It briefly describes the phonology, syntax and semantics of this variety, and explores its crucial role in the construction of ethnic identity among young Latinos and Latinas. It also corrects misconceptions in how the general public views Chicano English.
