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.
