Maintenance of Literacy in Spanish by Salvadorans in Los Angeles.
Pucci, Sandra Liliana
Southwest Journal of Linguistics, v19 n2 p73-90 Dec 2000
Explores the development and maintenance of first language literacy in a working class Salvadoran community in Los Angeles. Results indicate that this community continues to value literacy in Spanish, to engage in literacy events, and to regularly seek out printed material in Spanish. Literacy in Spanish was strongly tied to questions of cultural and national identity. (Author/VWL)
