AbstractThis paper consists of the study of three of the most successful and widely known authors of Chicano Literature: Miguel Mendez, Rolando Hinojosa-Smith and Rudolfo Anaya. The theoretical principles on which this analysis is based correspond to the fields of linguistics and narratology. The first part of the study deals with the language choice process related to each of the three writers. The second part of the analysis was carried out by transferring results obtained from the study of live speech to the literary texts. These two different levels of language were confronted in order to verify if any correspondence among them exists.
