A Spanish course in DePaul University (SPN 351) is asking all of its students to write an empirical research paper on a topic of their choice, concerning Spanish in the U.S. This course is an introduction to the varieties of Spanish spoken in the US. They examine the evolution of aspects of the grammatical, and lexical linguistic system of the Spanish of US Latino/a communities. One of the students of this course decided to write a research paper on the use of code-switching (also referred to as ‘Spanglish’) amongst adolescents in the U.S..
If you are of Hispanic heritage, live in the U.S. and fall under the ages of 13-20, please take this 5 minute survey. Thank you.
