Language in Immigrant America

Dominika M. Baran

Baran, an assistant professor of English, challenges mainstream, historically established assumptions about American citizenship and identity in a book relevant to current topics such as language and ethnicity, the relationship between non-native English and American identity, and perceptions and stereotypes related to foreign accents. Chapters also discuss code-switching, hybrid language forms such as Spanglish, language and the family, and the future of language in America.
