This book provides an in-depth examination of minority language maintenance and loss within a group of first-generation Spanish-speaking families in the early-21st century, post-industrial, hyper-globalized US Midwest, an area that has a recent history of Latino settlement and has a low ethnolinguistic vitality for Spanish. It looks specifically at language ‘in the small spaces’, that is, everyday interactions within households and families, and gives a detailed account of the gendered nature of linguistic transmission in immigrant households, as well as offering insights into the sociolinguistic aspects of language contact dynamics. Starting with the question of why speakers choose to use and transmit their family language in communities with few opportunities to use it, this book presents the reader with a theoretical model of language maintenance in low vitality settings. It incorporates mothers’ voices and perspectives on mothering, their families’ well-being, and their role in cultural/linguistic transmission and compares the self-perceptions, motivations, attitudes and language acquisition histories of members of two generations within the same household. It will appeal to researchers and educators interested in bilingualism, language maintenance and family language dynamics as well as to those working in the areas of education, immigration and sociology.

By the time children come to school they have participated in literacy events in English and perhaps other languages at home. The texts used in these events such as alphabet charts, calendars, newspapers and videos are significant, helping children to understand how written language works. This book aims to show how teachers can build on children's home experience when they write in the classroom. Based on a year-long research project in a south London nursery class, the book offers practical guidance on creating a multilingual literacy environment in the early years. Ideas include finding out about children's literacy worlds, encouraging families to bring materials in home languages into school and inviting parents to act as readers and writers in the classroom. Case studies show how children can all benefit from multilingual literacy activities as part of the curriculum , finding a role for themselves as writers, comparing script systems, and preparing texts for specific purposes. The author grounds her discussion in a theoretical framework which unites research on emergent literacy with that on bilingual learning and illustrates this lively account with examples of children's writing.
