The Sanitizing of U.S. Spanish in Academia.
Villa, Daniel J.
Foreign Language Annals, v35 n2 p222-30 Mar-Apr 2002
Discusses national linguistic tensions related to the increasing number of Spanish speakers in the United States. Focuses on a group of language scholars who are engaging in efforts to change or suppress the use of U.S. Spanish, particularly in the domain of Spanish. Asserts that the arguments put forth by this group are based on attitudes of the leaders rather than carefully constructed linguistic bases. (Author/VWL)
