  • Engaging Language, Ideologies, And Linguistics In The Caribbean And Beyond
    • Abstract: When linguists study languages that result from situations of contact—for example, Creoles, second language varieties, and mixed languages—they encounter a well-knit set of ideologies of oppression. In focusing on the Caribbean, these ideologies usually deny the presence of coherence, complexity, and creativity in these linguistic systems. The role that these language varieties play in enabling communication can be minimized as well, as specialists and non-specialists alike at times describe them as inadequate, defective, and impoverished. Moreover, some have even proposed that multi-ethnic and multi-lingual communities are "schizophrenic" and indicated that their members are alingual and without a well-defined ... Read More

  • Acercamientos A La Lengua, Las Ideologías Y La Lingüística En El Caribe
           Y Más Allá De Esta Región
    • Abstract: Cuando los lingüistas estudian las lenguas que resultan de las situaciones de contacto—por ejemplo, las lenguas criollas, las segundas lenguas y las lenguas mezcladas—confrontan una serie de ideologías de opresión ya establecidas. Al enfocarse en el Caribe, estas ideologías frecuentemente niegan la presencia de coherencia, complejidad y creatividad en estos sistemas lingüísticos. El papel que juegan estas variedades lingüísticas en la comunicación se suele minimizar también, ya que tanto algunos especialistas en el tema y otros no especialistas a veces describen estas variedades como si fueran inadecuadas, defectuosas y pobres. Asimismo, algunos han propuesto, incluso, que las comunidades multi-étnicas y ... Read More

  • Language Ideologies In An Immigrant Language Setting: The Case Of A
           European Language In Mexico
    • Abstract: In the case of immigrant language communities, the speakers of the immigrant language are often under significant social and economic pressures to acquire the language of the new country or region, generally giving rise to language shift by the third generation. This can be seen, for example, with numerous immigrant groups to the United States where English has often taken the place of the original language of the speakers. Whether a community adopts the majority language or maintains its own is dependent on a number of variables such as the numerical strength of the group in relation to other minorities and majorities, socioeconomic class, educational background, settlement patterns, ties with the homeland, extent ...

  • La Alternancia De Códigos En Puerto Rico: Preferencias Y Actitudes
    • Abstract: Una de las prácticas lingüísticas más comunes de algunos bilingües es la alternancia de códigos, que consiste en el uso de sus dos lenguas en la expresión oral o escrita. Cuando se utiliza en el habla, suele ocurrir en la misma porción del discurso, sin cambio de interlocutor. Además, tanto en el habla como en la escritura, ocurre sin que haya necesariamente un cambio de contexto ni tema. En Estados Unidos (EE.UU.), las primeras discusiones públicas de este fenómeno lingüístico—enfocadas en el bilingüismo de español-inglés—comenzaron a aparecer hacia la década de 1960. En esa época, la alter-nancia de códigos se asociaba generalmente con la falta de dominio de las dos lenguas; es decir, se pensaba que aquellos que ... Read More

  • 'Es Que Hablan Cantaditos'–Self-Reported Identification Strategies By
           Puerto Rican And Dominican Spanish Speakers
    • Abstract: Puerto Rican and Dominican Spanish, along with other varieties spoken in the Caribbean, such as those spoken in Cuba and the coastal regions of Colombia and Venezuela, have been termed "innovative" by researchers (e.g., Lipski 1994; Toribio 2000b). What makes these varieties unique are a number of linguistic features that all of these varieties share, such as the aspiration, denoted by the symbol [h], or loss of syllable-final /s/, denoted by the symbol [ø], as in the example la[h] casa[ø], 'the houses.' Moreover there is velarization, i.e. the articulation of [n] as of followed by [g] (e.g., 'coming') of /n/ (e[ŋ] casa, 'in (the) house'), and the use of overt pronouns (Tú me avisa cuando tú esté lista. 'Let me ... Read More

  • Delegitimising Creoles And Multiethnolects: Stereotypes And
           (Mis-)Conceptions Of Language In Online Debates
    • Abstract: In recent times, new forms of youth language have emerged in urban multicultural settings in the context of post-war migration, for example in Northern and Western Europe.1 These varieties or styles, often labelled "multiethnolects," have received growing attention in the last two decades from both linguists and the public at large.2 Adolescent communities in post-industrial European cities shaped new forms of languages which in some cases have received rather descriptive designations like London Multicultural English in the UK, Københavnsk multietnolekt ('Copenhagen multiethnolect') in Denmark, Kiezdeutsch ('neighbourhood German') in Germany, and straattaal ('street language') in the Netherlands and Belgium; other ...

  • Supporting Justice Reform In Jamaica Through Language Policy Change
    • Abstract: A 2007 report, the Jamaican Justice System Reform, Final Report, produced after a review of Jamaica's legal system by a government-commissioned task force, laid the foundation for a comprehensive reform of the country's justice system. The report identified weaknesses in the justice system and recommended changes to improve and modernise it. There is no discrete section of the report which focuses on language issues in the justice system, but there are several references throughout the document which suggest the need for changes in language practices in the system. The suggestions are largely in the form of specific recommendations for improving public access to, and understanding of the justice system, the major ... Read More

  • Fernando Picó Y La Nueva Historia Puertorriqueña: Una
           Reflexión Intempestiva
    • Abstract: "Desde fuera no hay una sola crítica que pruebe nada ni comprometa a nadie. Cuando atacamos el interior de una posición, el interior de nuestra posición, no tiramos contra el adversario sino contra nosotros mismos. Una crítica efectiva es una autotortura. El resto es un juego"."Eso debe ser la tradición: un instrumento, no la perpetuación de unos malhumores".Durante la década de los setenta del siglo pasado emergió eso que vino a llamarse Nueva Historia Puertorriqueña.1 La misma se distinguió por ofrecer renovadas perspectivas acerca del pasado puertorriqueño. Lo hizo gracias a su incorporación de temas escasamente sondeados por los historiadores locales—referidos sobre todo a la historia económica y social—, a la ... Read More

  • Gangs in the Caribbean: Responses of State and Society eds. by Anthony
           Harriott and Charles M. Katz, and: Democratic Insecurities: Violence,
           Trauma and Intervention in Haiti by Erica Caple James, and: Violence in
           Caribbean Literature: Stories of Stones and Blood by Veronique Maisier
           (review)
    • Abstract: The Caribbean region is ironically or paradoxically painted as paradise on earth but this bellies a place of great violence and poverty. The latter has often been reserved for Haiti, as it is so often referred to as the poorest country in the Americas, without, however, any explanation as to why it has become such. Jamaica, similar to Haiti, has been charged with being a poor, unsafe and aggressive place to visit. Two of the works begin with this understanding in mind and venture from there to explain the aftermath of a violent economy having been formed and the results of its continuation even after presumed emancipation. The three abovementioned works and their authors demonstrate the troubles of violence as well ... Read More

  • Escritura del desacato. A ritmo desenfadado. Narrativas dominicanas del
           nuevo milenio by Fernanda Bustamante (review)
    • Abstract: La canción "Caribe atómico" (1998) de Aterciopelados recoge varios tópicos marítimos basurales que describen El Caribe como un espacio geográfico de desenfrenados ritmos naturales ("soplan vientos pestilentes:"; "un caldo de cultivo"; "un mar muerto vertedero de basura"). De igual modo, se puntualiza aquí la metálica textura marítima desde lo político-ecológico: "el pez plutonio", "olas de acero y plata", "el mar brilla radioactivo". Todos estos elementos se contrapuntean en la imagen utópica de El Caribe como "un lugar paradisíaco de romance y aventura" (Aterciopelados 1998). En Escritura del desacato. A ritmo desenfadado. Narrativas dominicanas del nuevo milenio de Fernanda Bustamante se tematizan estos aspectos ... Read More

  • Redes. Estado, empresa y telecomunicaciones en Puerto Rico by Luis Rosario
           Albert (review)
    • Abstract: Pocas veces los lectores nos damos cuenta de las maneras en que elementos extraños al texto que tenemos en las manos pueden influir sobre la lectura de un libro. La luz, los ruidos, el calor o el frío, la silla en que uno se ha acomodado, hasta el hambre o el cansancio, todos influyen de una manera u otra sobre nuestra capacidad de disfrutar, o por lo menos, sostener el esfuerzo de seguir el desarrollo de un escrito. Mi segunda lectura del libro de Luis Rosario Albert, Redes. Estado, empresa y telecomunicaciones en Puerto Rico, definitivamente fue una experiencia moldeada por estas realidades. El ejercicio de lectura fue impactado por una serie de factores externos que, quizás irónicamente, también tienen mucho que ... Read More

  • Remixing Reggaetón: The Cultural Politics of Race in Puerto Rico by Petra
           R. Rivera-Rideau (review)
    • Abstract: Hice un esfuerzo de memoria musical y sonora para volver a mis años de escuela intermedia y superior de escuela pública del centro de Río Piedras en San Juan de Puerto Rico para situarme dentro del contexto del libro Remixing Reggaetón: The Cultural Politics of Race in Puerto Rico por Petra R. Rivera-Rideau. Al leer su trabajo, no pude evitar viajar algunos veinte años hacia el pasado. Complementé este ejercicio de reflexión y memoria en el acervo digital de YouTube, el cual, gracias al diligente trabajo de coleccionistas aficionados digitales, contiene toda la música que el libro problematiza y discute, y algunas otras joyas escondidas.En 1992, mi familia se mudó de un barrio de clase trabajadora de la capital de ...
