Lan­guage ideo­lo­gies in a mul­ti­eth­nic com­munity:

In line with previous research on language regard in South Florida, this project explores language ideologies in a multiethnic and multilingual context. It complements research on non-linguists’ beliefs about language in a linguistically diverse setting by showcasing how this context fosters language ideologies and whether diversity plays a role in forming representations of linguistic landscapes among Floridian residents. Data sets based on transcribed interviews are analyzed against the sociolinguistic variables of age, gender, and ethnicity and allow for a variationist approach to language ideologies.
