One of the topics covered in both the language, race, & ethnicity lecture videos and textbook chapter is that of “mock languages,” like Mock Spanish. For this discussion, you’ll be looking at a phenomenon sometimes referred to as “hispandering,” which was particularly prevalent in the 2016 U.S. presidential election debates & campaign, and also prevalent again in 2020. The goal of this post is to find 2 specific instances of “hispandering” and evaluate them with respect to Mock Spanish in order to answer the question “Is ‘hispandering’ a type of Mock Spanish?” Please note: A website or source that discusses and lists multiple instances of ‘hispandering’ by itself does not count as a “specific instance.” An specific instance involves language use at a particular time and place by a specific person – this is what you’ll need to identify 2 instances of.
There isn’t really a “right” or “wrong” answer to this question for the purposes of this exercise. But, in terms of crafting this post I’ll be looking for you to show an understanding of what Mock Spanish is and meaningfully engage the examples of ‘hispandering’ you’ve selected from the perspective of Mock Spanish. Below are some tips for doing this exercise well.
For your actual post, you will want to concisely state what Mock Spanish is and what ‘hispandering’ is in general, stating in this your own words but also citing whose ideas you’re referring to. Introduce the 2 instances of ‘hispandering’ that you selected, and make a case for whether or not you think either or both of them constitute Mock Spanish, referencing specific features that you believe to be most relevant to your decision, explaining what’s going on, and grounding your discussion in the examples you’ve selected.
