Profr. José Del Valle for Latino Rebels

“Perhaps no place has more language diversity in the world than New York City, and that extends to its Spanish speakers. “There is a lot of interdialectal contact between the Spanish speakers in N.Y.C.,” says CUNY professor José del Valle, who holds a Ph.D. in Hispanic linguistics. “Spaniards, Venezuelans, Peruvians, Argentines, Mexicans… We feel that we speak the same language, although, at the time of interaction, we sometimes don’t understand each other. There are a whole series of areas of instability.”
