Title: Beyond Yellow English
Subtitle: Toward a Linguistic Anthropology of Asian Pacific America
Edited By: Angela Reyes
Adrienne Lo
Series Title: Oxford Studies in Sociolinguistics
Description:

"Beyond Yellow English" is the first edited volume to examine issues of
language, identity, and culture among the rapidly growing Asian Pacific
American (APA) population. The distinguished contributors-who represent a
broad range of perspectives from anthropology, sociolinguistics, English, and
education-focus on the analysis of spoken interaction and explore multiple
facets of the APA experience. Authors cover topics such as media
representations of APAs; codeswitching and language crossing; and
narratives of ethnic identity. The collection examines the experiences of
Asian Pacific Americans of different ethnicities, generations, ages, and
geographic locations across home, school, community, and performance sites.
