Title: The Handbook of Hispanic Linguistics
URL: http://www.wiley.com/remtitle.cgi?1405198826
Series Title: Blackwell Handbooks in Linguistics
Description:

It is estimated that there are currently more than 400 million Spanish
speakers worldwide, with the United States being home to one of the world's
largest native Spanish-speaking populations. Reflecting the increasing
importance of the Spanish language both in the U.S. and abroad, "The
Handbook of Hispanic Linguistics" features a collection of newly-written
essays contributed by top Spanish linguistics scholars that explore all
facets relating to the origins, evolution, and geographical variations of
the Spanish language. While coverage is provided on applied concerns
such as second language learning, Spanish in the classroom, immigration,
heritage languages and bilingualism, several essays also address the
significant body of theoretical work emerging in Spanish linguistics. By
combining the most crucial elements of current findings in theoretical and
applied research, "The Handbook of Hispanic Linguistics" sheds new light on
the increasing growth and importance of the Spanish language.
