Summary

The aim of this study is threefold: (1) to explore differential/nondifferential code allocations for Spanish and English according to different domains of social interaction among Mexican-American college students; (2) to determine what linguistic and demographic variables are associated with differential usage patterns; (3) to relate the findings of this survey to those of other language-maintenance studies conducted among different Mexican-American subpopulations. Data for the study were obtained by mail questionnaires in the summer of 1974. One hundred and sixty-four students of Mexican descent, enrolled at The University of Texas at Austin, served as respondents. (Author)
