This volume--along with its companion "Ethnolinguistic Chicago: Language and Literacy in the City's Neighborhoods"--fills an important gap in research on Chicago, one of the most linguistically diverse cities in the United States and home to one of the largest and most diverse Latino communities, and more generally, on language use in globalized metropolitan areas. The focus is on the related issues of language and ethnicity.
