Book News Annotation:

Bailey (communication studies, U. of Massachusetts, Amherst) examines the language and identities of Dominican second-generation immigrant high school students as they negotiate ethnicity and race in Providence, Rhode Island. Coverage includes the effects of economic, linguistic, and ethnic/racial inequality on the linguistic negotiation of identities; differences in traditional Dominican and American frameworks for understanding Black and White race; individual variation within the categories "Dominican American" and "Dominican American language"; and implications of the study for the understanding of ethnic/racial/ formation processes and the roles of language in ethnic/racial identity negotiations.
