DescriptionIn sociolinguistic studies on bilingual speakers, studies have focused on oral language usage. Few conduct studies on the written usage of bilingual speakers, especially in smaller communities with concentrated populations of Spanish-speakers. This study focuses on a typology of written Spanish, regarding the use of lexicon, syntax and code switching of junior high bilingual-speakers in Central Illinois. The data will be collected using open-ended prompts that are to be responded to in Spanish. The responses will evidence written language usage, regarding the aforementioned characteristics, and give insight to written language ability of the Spanish speakers.
