abstract
The concept of Spanglish as both a language and a developing culture within the Latino ethnicity has become part of various academic and political discussions in recent years. The roots of Spanglish vary greatly as do the reasons to explain not only its development but also its growth. The attitudes towards the developing creole differ significantly as well: some view it as the worst and most disrespectful aspect of the transnational background that its speakers possess. The opposing side would say it is not just a language but a developing culture based on the multicultural upbringing of many of America’s Latinos. However the trend has spread beyond the borders of the United States throughout the Caribbean, Central and South America and even Spain. An examination of much of popular culture throughout all of these regions will reveal this actuality. As we examine the true scope of the spread of Spanglish, an uncertainty arises of where to draw the line. For those who approve of Spanglish, that do indeed see it as a developing form of expression for transnational Latinos, how do we decide when it has been taken too far? Or is it even possible to take it too far?
