Lecture: "Bilingual usage and linguistic attitudes in a community in Northern New Mexico"
Start Date: 4/24/2013Start Time: 12:30 PM
End Date: 4/24/2013End Time: 2:00 PM

Event Description:
Presented by Evelyn Durán Urrea (Lecturer, Dept. of Languages and Literatures)
In bilingual communities where one language is the subordinate and minority language, and the majority language carries the status of the defacto official language; speakers often have certain attitudes towards bilingualism and its status in the community. The feelings or emotions that speakers display about bilingual behavior can be difficult to assess, and can result in subjective generalizations if not properly documented. I extracted overt remarks from spontaneous conversations with bilingual speakers that could be interpreted as reflecting the use of language and attitudes toward bilingualism, and also remarks on topics related to ethnic identity and cultural practice. This method of work shows the speakers’ genuine and unbiased 'views' about language.
Sponsored by the School of Arts and Humanities Works in Progress Series.
