Product Overview

Puerto Ricans in the United States face an array of language judgments. Their linguistic differences are culturally objectified as "accents," "mixed" or "broken language," and "bad" versus "good" English. These objectifications are about a lot more than language. They represent a complex and highly politicized mapping of racial exclusion and class location. Through ethnographic studies and interviews done on New York''s Lower East Side and in the Bronx, the author examines in detail the intersection of race, class, and language in the working-class Puerto Rican experience.
