This volume, covering a range of topics such as Spanish as a heritage language in the United States, policy issues, pragmatics and language contact, sociolinguistic variation and contact, and Bozal (Creole) Spanish, will serve the interests of linguists, educators, and policy makers alike. It provides cutting edge research on varieties of Spanish spoken by children, teenagers, and adults in places as diverse as Chicago, New York, New Mexico, and Houston; Valencia and Galicia; the Andean highlands; and the border between Haiti and the Dominican Republic. The emphasis is on spoken Spanish, although researchers also investigate code-switching in the lyrics of bachata songs and the presence of creole in Cuban and Brazilian literature. This collection will be of interest wherever Spanish is spoken.

“This book covers diverse topics tackled from different theoretical approaches and analyzed in a broad range of social contexts. It is a key volume on linguistic and language issues, essential reading for anyone with an interest in the situation currently being faced by Spanish as it is spoken in contact with other languages across the globe.”
“Taken together, Spanish in Contact: Policy, social and linguistic inquiries has many strengths: The volume brings together cutting edge papers by leading and emerging scolars in the field; the papers are expertly edited and tightly argued and ; there is a diverse range of contexts, languages, regions and subjects represented. No doubt readers will find much of great use and interest here.”
“Spanish is in contact with other languages in many different geographical and social settings. This makes a comparative survey such as the present book an intellectually very stimulating project. I particularly appreciate the mix of more strictly academic and social and educational concerns.”
