Abstract

Our goal in this chapter is to test the perception of a typology of nonstandard Spanish features and Salvadoran lexical items among speakers of Los Angeles Vernacular Spanish (LAVS), a variant of Mexican Spanish used by the predominant Spanish-speaking speech community in Los Angeles. We demonstrate how Spanish-speaking immigrant communities in the United States reclassify acceptability ratings in a country that does not impose Standard Spanish, unless the speaker willingly enrolls in courses of L2 Spanish.
