Dsparks8 rated it it was ok Aug 11, Nicole Alexandra rated it it was amazing Mar 14, I don’t know that I’d recommend this to anyone who’s not into reading fairly technical academic writing for fun, but if that’s your thing then Zentella does a fantastic job of painting a rich qualitative and quantitative portrait of children’s language, and debunking the idea of ‘Spanglish’ speakers as ‘confused’ or ‘alingual’.
