Validating and Promoting Spanish in the United States: Lessons from Linguistic Science.
Carreira, Marie
Bilingual Research Journal, v24 n4 p423-42 Fall 2000
Derisive attitudes towards Spanish in the United States threaten its survival. Four issues vital to the preservation of Spanish in the United States are examined: the arbitrary nature of linguistic prejudice, the linguistic validity of all dialects, the overwhelming linguistic overlap between nonstandard and standard dialects of Spanish, and the value of learning the standard language.
