Language and Identity in Twentieth Century Puerto Rico.
Morris, Nancy
Journal of Multilingual and Multicultural Development, v17 n1 p17-32 1996
Reviews the history of the language controversy in Puerto Rico from the United States takeover of the island in 1898 through the 1991 and 1993 language laws that eliminated and then restored English as an official language. The article emphasizes the shifting ways that language has served as a symbolic maker. (47 references) (Author/CK)
