Gingras, Rosario C.
Among the Mexican American Dialects activity's concerns is the linguistic phenomena characterizing what has been termed Local Hispanicized English (LHE) and whether or not LHE has become an institutionalized dialect of American English. In order to answer whether LHE has characteristics distinguishing it from other Hispanicized forms of English spoken elsewhere in the Southwest, data from Mexican American children and adults in other parts of the Southwest must be compared with local data. This document describes 2 sets of data collected in Riverside, California and Harlingen, Texas consisted of 38 hours of recorded conversation of Mexican American subjects during various types of interviews. Comments are directed at the linguistic variety and quality of the materials and the relevance of the materials to present Mexican Dialects activity. (Author/NQ)
