An Analysis of the Linguistic Characteristics of the English Found in a Set of Mexican-American Child Data.
A set of data collected by researchers at the University of California at Riverside and presented to the Southwest Regional Laboratory (SWRL) is described in this document. The data consist of 14 hours of recorded interviews of 60 Mexican-American children in Riverside in grades 1-3. Comments are directed at the linguistic characteristics of the English spoken by the subjects. Those linguistic features that are distinct from Southwestern English are then noted. Further comments are directed at the quality of the materials and at the relevancy of the materials to present SWRL activity. (Author/JM)
