They are told their English is "impure" or "broken" because it has been "mixed" with Spanish. In short, Puerto Ricans in the United States are told that the origins of their economic and social problems are linguistic and can be remedied through personal efforts, when in fact their fundamental problems stem from racial and class exclusion. Concepts like "mixed" or "broken" languages and "good" and "bad" English are cultural constructions and therefore are about more than language. In the Puerto Rican experience of devaluation and prejudice in the United States, the institutionalization of racial exclusion and class location are mapped onto English and Spanish in complex and highly politicized ways. Formal linguistic studies of bilingualism rarely engage this process in a significant way. But the place, function, and meaning of cultural constructs within the politicized communicative economy must be understood in terms of the intersections of race, class, and language that shape the lives of working-class Puerto Ricans. Working from ethnographic studies and interviews done on New York's Lower East Side and in the Bronx, this book examines those intersections in detail."@en ;
