The Persistence of Patrimonial Varieties of Spanish in the U.S. E-mail this message to a friend
Patrimonial varieties of Spanish in the U,S. (those dialects in residence before the 20th century, such as Isleño Spanish, New Mexican Spanish, Ladino) have persisted alongside more recent varieties, sometimes helped by immigrant communities and sometimes in spite of conflicting perceptions. How do patrimonial communities survive and thrive? What linguistic and cultural elements are essential to their identities? I'm looking for scholars who would like to contribute their research to a thematic anthology about the perseverance of traditional Spanish-speaking communities.
