Summary
"Latino English varieties, especially Mexican American English (henceforth MxAE), have received a considerable amount of research over the past six decades. In spite of that, they are still poorly understood in most respects. The reasons are numerous: most of the research has consisted of studies of limited scope, a fair amount of it was published in obscure venues, the issues of Spanish maintenance and of code switching often seem to overshadow Latino English in research efforts, Latino communities are widely dispersed across the United States, and there is a host of social issues that complicate exploration of Latino language varieties even as they enrich it. One aim of this book is to help rectify the weak understanding of Latino Englishes and MxAE"--
