Abstract:

The present volume represents a variety of portraits of what happens when
families attempt to raise children in Spanish while living in
English-speaking societies. Aided by the foregrounding chapter by Suzanne
Romaine about language and identity and the afterword by Carol Klee that
ties together many issues brought up throughout the collection, the reader
gains a more complete understanding of the variables that contribute to
Spanish bilingualism in English-speaking societies, and by extension a more
complete understanding of the dynamic nature of bilingualism in general.
This volume, the first of its kind, brings together an impressive array of
sociolinguistic environments while keeping the two languages constant. We
hope that it marks the beginning of comparative analyses of bilingualism,
acquisition outcomes, and identity construction across environments that
share the same languages, but where important disparities exist in the
sociolinguistic landscapes.

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and as 
such can receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered 
501(c) Non Profit organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These 
donations can be offset against your federal and sometimes your state tax return 
(U.S. tax payers only). For more information visit the IRS Web-Site, or contact 
your financial advisor.

Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match 
any gift you make to a non-profit organization. Normally this entails your 
contacting your human resources department and sending us a form that the 
EMU Foundation fills in and returns to your employer. This is generally a simple 
administrative procedure that doubles the value of your gift to LINGUIST, without 
costing you an extra penny. Please take a moment to check if your company 
operates such a program.
