One Margarita, Please! Language Attitudes Regarding Pronunciation in the Language of Origin
Much research has been performed on English spoken with an accent (c.f. Carranza and Ryan 1975; Lippi-Green 1997) and English borrowings in Spanish (c.f. González 1999). However, there is a lack of information regarding Spanish words that maintain their original phonetic realization when spoken in English. The present study reveals data concerning attitudes towards this phenomenon, if and how it is stigmatized, and by whom.
