Immigrants and internal migrants with origins in Cuba, Puerto Rico, and the Dominican Republic have figured centrally in the formation and renovation of many U.S. cities. In turn, (re)settlement in established enclaves and new destinations has acted upon and influenced their identity and linguistic outcomes. This chapter addresses the ethnic and linguistic affiliations and practices of these groups, as members seek to navigate their oftentimes ambiguous status within U.S. racial hierarchies and respond to the prevailing language attitudes and ideologies of their communities and of the larger society.
Code-switching – the alternating use of two languages in the same stretch of discourse by a bilingual speaker – is a dominant topic in the study of bilingualism and a phenomenon that generates a great deal of pointed discussion in the public domain. This handbook provides the most comprehensive guide to this bilingual phenomenon to date. Drawing on empirical data from a wide range of language pairings, the leading researchers in the study of bilingualism examine the linguistic, social and cognitive implications of code-switching in up-to-date and accessible survey chapters. The Cambridge Handbook of Linguistic Code-switching will serve as a vital resource for advanced undergraduate and graduate students, as a wide-ranging overview for linguists, psychologists and speech scientists and as an informative guide for educators interested in bilingual speech practices.
