Teaching Philosophy Classes In Spanish Or Bilingually In The South Texas Borderlands, Alex Stehn, Cynthia Paccacerqua, Danny Marrero, Christopher Gomez, Dania López García, Katherine Christoffersen 2024 The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley

Teaching Philosophy Classes In Spanish Or Bilingually In The South Texas Borderlands, Alex Stehn, Cynthia Paccacerqua, Danny Marrero, Christopher Gomez, Dania López García, Katherine Christoffersen

11th National Symposium on Spanish as a Heritage Language

Situated in the deep south Texas borderlands, over 90% of our students are Hispanic or Latino/a/x and the majority are bilingual. That is, most students enrolled across every course at our university are heritage speakers of Spanish. As professional philosophers, we believe that teaching these students should involve engaging them as the bilingual and bicultural students they are while helping them develop philosophical biliteracy. Our panelists are from different linguistic and cultural backgrounds (native speaker, heritage speaker, L2 speaker) but all of us are bilingual, bicultural, and biliterate faculty who have been working together as a team to design and …

Remixing And Adapting Oer Creatively To Fit Our Shl Students’ Needs, Jocelly G. Meiners

11th National Symposium on Spanish as a Heritage Language

Although creating OER for our SHL courses might seem daunting, there are many currently existing OER for SHL instruction that can serve as the base for the creation of new materials and curriculum. In this presentation, I will show how instructors can creatively adapt and remix resources to serve their students’ needs.


Spanish Rhotic Production And Dialectal Variation In Mexican Heritage Speakers, Ileana Perez 2024 Texas A&M University-San Antonio

Spanish Rhotic Production And Dialectal Variation In Mexican Heritage Speakers, Ileana Perez

11th National Symposium on Spanish as a Heritage Language

Spanish has two phonemic rhotics, the tap /ɾ/ and trill /r/, but these phonemic sounds present dialectal variation. Previous work has looked at variation and dialectal rhotics amongst monolingual speakers of Spanish, finding that, depending on their dialect, monolinguals can produce aspirated, assibilated, and fricated rhotics as well as lateralized and deleted rhotics (Bradley et al., 1999). Only one study has analyzed Heritage speakers’ rhotic variation and found that, Heritage speakers are able to produce dialectal rhotics such as the Mexican assibilated rhotic (Cummings Ruiz et al., 2020). In the current study, I build upon previous literature to further explore …

Investigating Language Ideologies And Attitudes Towards Dubbing Disney Movies Into Arabic, Nouran T. Soliman 2024 The American University in Cairo AUC

Investigating Language Ideologies And Attitudes Towards Dubbing Disney Movies Into Arabic, Nouran T. Soliman

Theses and Dissertations

This research delves into the analysis of online discussions surrounding the dubbing of Disney movies into two Arabic varieties: Modern Standard Arabic (MSA) and Egyptian Colloquial Arabic (ECA). The objective is to uncover the language ideologies and attitudes taken by Disney fans online. Dubbing Disney movies into these two varieties has sparked numerous debates on social media, particularly on Facebook. The study employed stance-taking to analyze the metalinguistic comments made by Facebook users about the use of these two Arabic varieties in the context of Disney. A Verbal Guise Technique (VGT) experiment was conducted on Disney excerpts to complement the …

Translation In The Linguistic Landscape Along The Us Border With Mexico, Gabriel González Núñez 2024 The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley

Translation In The Linguistic Landscape Along The Us Border With Mexico, Gabriel González Núñez

11th National Symposium on Spanish as a Heritage Language

Cities are the hubs of the modern world, and in border towns between states with different languages, these hubs are bilingual. Such bilingual towns offer opportunities to examine the extent to which translation, including the decision to not translate, plays a role in shaping the public spaces of cities (see González Núñez & Meylaerts). This presentation seeks to do that by relying on the methods developed for the study of the linguistic landscape (e.g., Landry & Bourhis). It will report on such a study as carried out in Brownsville, a city that sits on the Texas border with Mexico. The …


The Social Stratification Of Spanish Uptalk In The South Texas Border Town Of Laredo, Texas, Natalie Rangel 2024 Texas A&M University-San Antonio

The Social Stratification Of Spanish Uptalk In The South Texas Border Town Of Laredo, Texas, Natalie Rangel

11th National Symposium on Spanish as a Heritage Language

The Social Stratification of Spanish uptalk in the South Texas Border Town of Laredo, Texas

This study explores the sociolinguistic role of uptalk (also known as high rising terminals) in the local Spanish of Laredo, Texas. It particularly focuses on the interrelationship between uptalk, area of residence, and the self-identification as a fresa. High rising terminals (HRTs) are known to be characteristic to fresas, a Mexican cultural group that refers to individuals who belong to privileged social classes, live expensive lifestyles, and speak Spanish distinctively (Chaparro, 2016; Cordova Abundis & Corona Zenil, 2002; Martínez Gómez, 2018; Urteaga & Ortega, …

Exploring Spanish Heritage Speakers’ Coping Mechanisms To Manage Name-Based Microaggressions, Gabriela Rivera Marín, Patrick L. Grey, Melanie L. Delgado, Diego Pascual Y Cabo, Leire Echevarría Canal

11th National Symposium on Spanish as a Heritage Language

Spanish Heritage Speakers (HSs) in the U.S. can be the target of indirect acts of discrimination related to their ethnolinguistic identity (Ayón & Philbin, 2017). Name-based microaggressions are subtle insults directed at marginalized groups or individuals as a reaction, often unconscious or automatic, to their given name. This can include mispronunciation, renaming practices or indexical bleaching of an ethnic name (i.e., Bucholtz, 2005; Ayón & Philbin, 2017). Although it may seem harmless to a casual observer, students exposed to name-related subtle discrimination can experience feelings of othering, hyper-awareness, and unconscious internalization of harmful racial ideologies directed towards their ethnoracial group …
