Delving into the uneasy relationship between English and Spanish in the United States of America, this book approaches specific topics from a variety of perspectives, ranging from the more cultural to the more linguistic. The contributions explore the problems arising in Puerto Rico as a consequence of the unique political status of the island; the linguistic peculiarities of codeswitching, and its use in legal and medical contexts where interpreting is necessary and in educational contexts with heritage language students; the (non)use and the ideological implications of translation in colonial museums; the connections between language, ethnicity and gender identities in the South West; and the role played by the Hispanic press in promoting intercultural dialogue in the New York City area. Engaging with previous publications, the book examines these topics from an interdisciplinary standpoint, offers new insights into the problems of this cultural and linguistic contact, and suggests new areas of research. This book was originally published as a special issue of Language and Intercultural Communication.
