On the linguistic status of Spanglish and its grammaticalpeculiarities

The aim of the article is to discuss why Spanglish may be considered a hybrid language, to indicate some of its grammatical characteristics, and to compare them with the basic mechanisms of code-switching. This type of analysis allows one to observe that Spanglish is not just an inept attempt to follow its rules, but a far more complicated language system which already possesses a few individual morphological and syntactic characteristics. By taking into account different linguistic and non-linguistic factors, the author leans towards a conception of Spanglish as a natural phenomenon in the evolution of languages.
