This book provides an inside view of the social construction of
bilingualism in one of the largest and most disadvantaged
Spanish-speaking groups in the United States. It walks readers through
a New York Puerto Rican Community and describes the five varieties of
Spanish and English that constitute the community's bilingual and
multi-dialectal repertoire, the four major communication patterns that
predominate in the homes of twenty families with children, and the
syntactic features and discourse strategies of so-called "Spanglish".
