An Analysis of Attitudes Toward Spanish as Expressed in "US ENGLISH Update." Presidential Address.
Gynan, Shaw N.
Southwest Journal of Linguistics, v12 n1-2 p1-37 1993
Analysis of the first 10 years of the newsletter, "US ENGLISH Update," reveals that its main focus is restricting the use of Spanish in the United States out of fear for the status of English. This policy objective is rooted in language attitudes based on impressions and hearsay. It blames bilingual education for an unwillingness of Spanish speakers to learn English. (Author/SM)
