Title: Bilingual Youth
Subtitle: Spanish in English-speaking societies
Edited By: Kim Potowski
Jason Rothman
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=SiBil%2042
Series Title: Studies in Bilingualism 42
Description:

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.
