Proceedings of the National Exploratory Conference on Chicano Sociolinguistics (Las Cruces, New Mexico, November 6-8, 1974).
Rodriguez del Pino, Salvador, Ed.; And Others
Purpose of the conference was to develop a set of priorities for sociolinguistic research on the Chicano community over the next 3 to 5 years. The conference was designed to develop guidelines for such research. Workshops dealt with specific areas of sociolinguistic theory, applied sociolinguistics, and sociolinguistic research policy guidelines. Topics covered were: (1) language varieties and attitudes toward language, (2) sociolinguistics and bilingual education, (3) Spanish language instruction for Chicanos, (4) language creativity in the Chicano community, (5) language policies and the Chicano community, (6) publication and dissemination of Chicano language materials, and (7) guidelines for sociolinguistic research. After the workshops, a plenary session was held to present workshop summaries and resolutions to the group as a whole. Prepared from transcriptions of recorded sessions and from notes taken at the workshop sessions, this report includes a summary of the workshop discussion and recommendations, a brief analysis of the workshop proceedings, a presentation of the final plenary session, and a list of participants. The proceedings appear in both English and Spanish in order to reproduce the actual linguistic setting of the workshops. Where the workshop was conducted primarily in Spanish, a short summary in English is provided. (NQ)
