Speaking from a Bilingual Brain and Multicultural Heart

In today’s A Public Affair, KGNU Newsroom volunteer and CU Boulder freshman Juanita Hurtado interviews linguistics professor Chase Raymond.

Professor Raymond works at the University of Colorado-Boulder and researches what is known as “situations of contact,” moments when divergent languages, dialects, and cultures interact together with a primary focus on the Spanish-speaking experience in the United States.

Hurtado and Raymond spoke about linguistics and various aspects of what language is, unique experiences for multilingual people, the flawed concept of the ideal native speaker, and how languages affect topics like gender, identity, and sexuality.
