Results of our first poll: What do you think of Spanglish?by Erin
The results are in! We've closed our first poll.
We asked: What do you think of Spanglish?
Here's what you told us.
Of the 60 visitors who voted:
55% (33 voters) consider Spanglish a dangerous threat to the Spanish language.
26% (16 voters) think of Spanglish as the natural evolution of the language.
18% (11 voters) consider Spanglish a completely new American language.
Interested in the Spanglish controversy?
For a real taste of the "Spanglish" language from the American college professor who calls Spanglish a "new American language", dive into the first chapter of Don Quijote in Spanglish. (One blogger's opinion and definitely not necessarily the opinion of the don Quijote schools: if this is a new language, it's an extraordinarily ugly one. I'll stick with Spanish.)
So, any thoughts on our poll results? Surprising? Just as you expected?
