El Diccionario Del Espanol Chicano (The Dictionary of Chicano Spanish).
Galvan, Roberto A.; Teschner, Richard V.
This is a supplementary dictionary of the Spanish spoken by Chicanos in the states of Texas, California, Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, and Florida. The nearly 8,000 entries represent a compilation of Chicano words and phrases not typically found in standard dictionaries. Items are listed alphabetically in Spanish, followed by an English definition. This is intended, however, as a supplement to full-length dictionaries of standard Spanish. Appendices contain proverbs and sayings, a brief discussion on verbs ending in -iar and -ear, and a bibliography. (Author/AM)
