Salvador Tió … wove the threads between academic and popular discourses. In the 1940s, he coined the term espanglish which is still the lightning rod in the language debates over diasporic Spanish-speaking communities in the US. Tió mocked the lexical and morpho-syntactic results of linguistic contact by making up nonsense Spanglish items such as treepar combining the English noun “tree” and the Spanish infinitive morpheme – ar and presumably meaning “to climb a tree/trepar un arbol. ” In these descriptions, Puerto Rican speakers of contact Spanish are repeatedly associated with ridicule.  From Valdez, Juan R. “The battleground of metaphors: language debates and symbolic violence in Puerto Rico (1930-1960)” in Vol. 2, 1 (2016).

Language, Interaction and Acquisition



From the John Benjamins website for the journal:

LIA is a bilingual English-French journal that publishes original theoretical and empirical research of high scientific quality at the forefront of current debates concerning language acquisition. It covers all facets of language acquisition among different types of learners and in diverse learning situations, with particular attention to oral speech and/or to signed languages. Topics include the acquisition of one or more foreign languages, of one or more first languages, and of sign languages, as well as learners’ use of gestures during speech; the relationship between language and cognition during acquisition; bilingualism and situations of linguistic contact – for example pidginisation and creolisation. The bilingual nature of LIA aims at reaching readership in a wide international community, while simultaneously continuing to attract intellectual and linguistic resources stemming from multiple scientific traditions in Europe, thereby remaining faithful to its original French anchoring. LIA is the direct descendant of the French-speaking journal AILE.

Now available to the University of Cambridge electronically from volume 5 (2014) to present.
