Abstract/Description

Globalization, as the global diffusion of modes, values or trends that fosters the uniformity of tastes and customs through technology has forever changed our cultures and languages. As cultures and people continually evolve, so does our language. No other period in history has modeled the complexity or vastness of how globalization has led to the English language to be permeated throughout Spanish language and Hispanic cultures. This study will explore how the recent rise in technology over the past decade has highly contributed more than any other factor to the high prevalence of an English language influence within Spanish language. While previously the geographic location of a country and the language of surrounding countries were the primary influence of language and culture, technology has created a global diffusion of trends and language that has become the main influencer of the Spanish language.
