"Spanglish" is a hybrid style of speaking that combines grammar and vocabulary from both English and Spanish. Contrary to popular belief, Spanglish doesn't reflect poor knowledge of either language. Instaed, Spanglish speakers generally command both individual languages and an additional set of rules governing how, when, and why to switch between the two. Linguists call this "code-switching." Spanglish reflects the complex mixture of identities that characterize Latino life in America.

ABOUT SPANISH VOICES
The unprecedented growth of the Spanish-speaking populations in the Southeastern US has led to major language issues about the co-existence of English and Spanish. Spanish Voices tells the story of those who have participated in this change- through interviews with recent immigrants, long-term residents, musicians, dancers, language instructors, and students. Their narratives show how their experiences are unique to the Southeast as well as common to language contact situations worldwide.
