Florida may be one of the 50 United States of America, but once you get to Miami you’re in a whole different world. Here, Latin American influences can be seen in everything from the food we eat to the way we drive. Along with all of the new cultural norms comes a new language: “Spanglish.” No, we’re not talking about the movie starring Adam Sandler.
What we mean is the mash-up of English and Spanish, creating a whole new language native to the residents of Miami. Historically, the practice of mixing English words into the Spanish language might have been thought of as something only done by those recently immigrated into the United States. It’s clear things have changed.
