Bilingualism in the Barrio. Final Report.
Fishman, Joshua A.; And Others
This two-volume collection of studies attempts to measure and describe the sociolinguistic norms of a Puerto Rican bilingual community. The target population of 43l individuals in a single neighborhood in Jersey City identify with the large Puerto Rican community of the greater New York area. The individual studies, all written to be understood independently, are grouped into background studies and sociologically, psychologically, and linguistically oriented sections. Some interviews and census studies are included. Alternative measures of bilingualism are discussed in a concluding section, and additional papers, instruments, and code sheets are contained in theoretical addenda and appendixes. (AF)
