This book will be of special interest to the general reader concerned
with the issue of language in the United States, as well as the
language specialist and sociolinguist. It has been written to inform
those wishing to learn more about the role that languages other than
English have had, and continue to have, in the life of the most
important United States city, New York. At the same time this volume
makes an important contribution to the scholarly literature on urban
multilingualism and the sociology of language. The book contains
chapters on languages of ethnolinguistic groups who arrived early in
New York and which have been somewhat silenced (Irish, German,
Yiddish), the languages of groups who made early contributions and
continue to be heard in the city (Italian, Greek, Spanish, Hebrew),
and languages which are acquiring an important voice in the city today
(Chinese, Indian languages, English creoles, Haitian Creole).
