This article seems copied from somewhere else, and is very unencyclopedic in tone. Its subject may be notable, but please rewrite in a more neutral tone. Thanks! --lightspeedchick 01:51, 17 February 2007 (UTC)

Spanglish is a dialect, not a standard language. Lestrade (talk) 17:32, 1 November 2011 (UTC)Lestrade

You are correct, Spanglish is not a recognized standard language -- but I imagine many reviewers who favor this author's works wouldn't deign to acknowledge the significance or importance of even temporal conventions like grammar or linguistic definitions. The article goes on to say the following in sincere reverence without a hint of irony, "Written in three languages, English, Spanglish, and Spanish, Braschi's work captures the cultural experience of nearly 50 million Hispanic Americans." Wow, sounds pretty profound! How did the author manage that in the span of a single or even several works, especially considering that the 50 million people come from distinctly different nationalities and backgrounds? I get it, this work is an outgrowth of the Derrida, Foucalt, DeMan, Spivak, Marx & Engels, Gramschi, and Said post-modern, post-colonialism, post-structural course....neat. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 10:27, 18 January 2014 (UTC)
