There's a good 3-part series going on about the new English dialects forming in
many Latino communities and challenges faced by speakers in schools and other
venues.

Parts 1-2 are:
http://latino.foxnews.com/latino/lifestyle/2012/05/21/born-in-us-but-speaking-with-
accent/

http://latino.foxnews.com/latino/lifestyle/2012/05/22/educators-struggle-to-teach-
students-whose-english-is-infused-with-spanish/

It is from Fox News, but they have some great quotes from Walt Wolfram and
Carmen Fought.
