The Role of English and Spanish (Bi)lingualism in U.S. Hispanicity: Factors Constructing a Collectivity.
Stephens, Thomas M.
Bilingual Review/Revista Bilingue, v19 n1 p3-8 Jan-Apr 1994
Addresses the question of how constraints are established by which Hispanicity is determined vis-a-vis language. It argues that, if Spanish-English bilingualism comes to prevail among American Hispanics, they will lose the Spanish language as a mother tongue and their distinct culture, becoming an Anglophone subculture similar to Irish or Italian Americans.
