Who Supports the English-Only Movement? Evidence for Misconceptions About Latino Group Vitality.
Barker, Valerie; Giles, Howard
Journal of Multilingual and Multicultural Development, v23 n5 p353-70 2002
Using vitality theory as a framework, investigates whether support for English-only policies among Anglo-Americans is related to perceptions about growing Latino group vitality and the presence of Spanish in the linguistic landscape. Conducted a telephone survey in Santa Barbara, California. Found Anglo-Americans' perceptions of growing latino vitality together with decreasing Anglo vitality and a strong within group identity, were related to support for English-only policies and social limitations on immigrants.
