Subject: Media: NYT: Spanish nominal pronouns

 There is an article in the December 5, 2002 online edition of the New
York Times on the use of nominal pronouns in the various varieties of
Spanish spoken in New York City, entitled "In Simple Pronouns, Clues to
Shifting Latino Identity", by Janny Scott. A sample paragraph:

 "It's interesting to compare Puerto Ricans, Dominicans and Cubans with
the Mexicans, who use few pronouns," he said. "And communities are different
in their exposure to English. The Mexican community in New York is new; the
Puerto Rican community is well settled."
