Language and Identity: Women's Autobiographies of the American Immigrant Experience.
Morrow, Nancy
Language & Communication, v17 n3 p177-85 Jul 1997
Looks at the autobiographies of immigrant women and discusses the attitude that immigrants must learn English in exchange for the advantages accrued to them. Suggests that this attitude reflects an unrealistic view of the immigrant experience as uniformly positive. Concludes that any policy designed to create common linguistic ground for national identity must preserve minority languages. (13 references) (Author/CK)
