AbstractThis dissertation explores the relationahip of personal narrative and the formation of place-identity in northern New Mexico Hispanic villages. In particular it identifies linguistic and discursive strategies that are emphasized within naturallly occurring and institutional speech-events in the villages, households and schools. These linguistic strategies contribute to a larger trajectory of language socialization that is somewhat particular to the region. some of these linguistic strategies include the use of regional Spanish lexicon and syntax as well as linguistic competence in certain areas of cultural content.
