As the name implies, Spanglish — or Spangles in Spanish — is a hybrid between Spanish and English, but there is some disagreement as to exactly what that means. There is no “standard” Spanglish out there, and there aren’t official rules about how it’s spoken.

It’s the catch-all term for whenever someone combines Spanish and English features in their speech. Depending on where it’s spoken, it can be more Spanish or more English. Here’s just one famous example of Spanglish in pop culture: Some linguists argue that Spanglish is just a version of code-switching — when people switch between languages within a single sentence. Others advocate for the idea that Spanglish refers only to a more complex combination of languages. The linguists who think that Spanglish is more substantive than a dialect sometimes call it a pidgin. Another phenomenon in Spanglish is borrowing, which is when English words are taken and transformed into Hispanicized ones.

As early as March, officials said, some of the 800,000 young adults brought to the United States illegally as children who qualify for the program, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, will become eligible for deportation. The five-year-old policy allows them to remain without fear of immediate removal from the country and gives them the right to work legally.
