Many of the chapters focus on regional aspects of Spanish in the US, ranging from sociolinguistic issues among Dominicans in New York and Cubans in Miami to the adoption and adaptation of forms from Nahuatl and English in the southwestern US. Other chapters discuss the outlook for the growing population of Spanish speakers in many areas of the United States, particularly in bilingual education and other public policy questions.
The book includes an introduction to the volume by Ana Roca and a history of US Spanish research by John M. Lipski.
