Spanish Language Shift Reversal on the US-Mexico Border and the Extended Third Space.
Hidalgo, Margarita
Language and Intercultural Communication, v1 n1 p57-75 2001
Discusses language shift reversal (LSR), defined as a change in the progress affecting Spanish language use along the US-Mexico border and some other extended areas of the country during the past few decades. LSR is contrasted with reversing language shift, the result of official language policy and planning. Samples of LSR in San Diego County are presented in connection with reactions toward bilingual education in a space loaded with ambivalence. (Author/VWL)
