The Influence of English on the Spanish Syntax of El Paso-Juarez.
Patterson, Jean Scarborough
The Spanish syntax of 36 English-Spanish bilingual students at the University of Texas at El Paso was examined to determine the variety and extent of English influence on Spanish syntax and to correlate the relative extent of this influence with selected extra-linguistic factors. The most significant finding was that the group of students having the highest rate of English-influenced Spanish syntax indicated that they spoke predominantly English with their peers; in contrast, the group of students revealing the lowest average of English-influenced Spanish syntax indicated that they spoke mostly Spanish with their peers.
