Cascadilla Press is delighted to announce this new edited collection.
Research on Spanish in the United States is intended for use in
courses, as well as by scholars and researchers interested in the
area. The 29 original articles are organized into sections on
interpreting; historical perspectives; borrowings of words and
phrases; codeswitching, narratives, and discourse; sociolinguistics
and pragmatics; phonology, morphology, and syntax; and language
attitudes and planning.

The chapters were carefully chosen and commissioned so that students
will find lots of accessible and interesting material, while also
containing important new research data, analysis, and ideas. Many of
the chapters focus on regional aspects of Spanish in the US, ranging
from sociolinguistic issues among Dominicans in New York and Cubans in
Miami to the adoption and adaptation of forms from Nahuatl and English
in the southwestern US. Other chapters discuss the outlook for the
growing population of Spanish speakers in many areas of the United
States, particularly in bilingual education and other public policy
questions. The book includes an introduction to the volume by Ana
Roca and a history of US Spanish research by John M. Lipski.

The complete table of contents is on our web site at

ordering. If you would like a 60-day examination copy to consider this
book for course adoption, please send e-mail to michaelcascadilla.com
with your name, address, the course you're considering it for, and the
expected enrollment.
