The Nuyorican's Dilemma: Categorization of Returning Migrants in Puerto Rico.
Lorenzo-Hernandez, Jose
International Migration Review, v33 n4 p988-1013 Win 1999
Investigated self and social categorization of Puerto Rican returning migrants (Nuyoricans). Surveys indicated that migrant and non-migrant high school students evaluated Nuyorican adolescents as significantly different from adolescents raised in Puerto Rico. Student evaluations of adolescents differing in salience of Nuyorican attributes (presented via photos and audiotapes) indicated that language characteristics and physical appearance could categorize people as Nuyorican.
