Like most language sharing cultures, analyzing the separate governments in Spanish speaking countries shows a great deal of diversity between them. Each unique in how they are ran, the powers their leaders hold as well as several other more specific characteristics. Practically all modern Spanish speaking countries began their existence as colonies of Spain in the colonial period of the new world (1492-1832) so It’s interesting to see just how different each country wound up after gaining its independence. Much like siblings, each country ended up better or worse than one of its counterparts for any number of historical factors, some showing a similar state of being to the democratic United States, others appearing more like a totalitarian dictatorship. According to PlanetRulers, an informational website created and updated by the Patterson School of Diplomacy, all but three Spanish speaking countries fall into free or mostly free democratic based governments.

Those of Spanish-speaking descent have all experienced one of the following at least once in their lives: “Did you make those tacos yourself?”, “Are you Mexican?” When realization hits that this individual speaks a second language they ask, “So you speak Spanish?” or, “Say something in Spanish for me.” Followed by an awkward response of something that hardly skates passed a mere “Hola.” A rather important misconception coincides with the idea that all “Latinos” derive from Mexico, a colossal assumption that unfortunately stands as the most common perception. Essentially the word “Latino” is a diverse word applied to persons deriving from the numerous countries located in Central and South America, along with Mexico. Both words “Latino” and

She applies a mixture of English and Spanish along with quotation in both languages . On the first page, she writes “El Anglo con cara de incocente nos arranco la lengua. Wild tongues can’t be tamed, they can only be cut out.” (Anzaldua, 497) This mixing language use can also be seemed in subtitle and quotation. For example, under her subtitle “Overcoming the tradition of silence”, she quotes “ahogadas, escupimos……nos sepulta.” (Anzaldua, 498). It would be logical to conclude that she expects her audience to have some basic understanding about Spanish.
2.1.2. Accent and Phonetics Phonetics, the sub-area of linguistics that studies the sounds of speech, defines an accent as a specific pronunciation which is determined by the phonetic habits of the speaker 's native language carried over to his or her use of another language (O’Grady, Archibald, Aronoff, Rees-Miller, 2005). In terms of phonetics the accent is viewed as the speaker’s ability/ inability to pronounce the phonemes of a second language correctly. So the accent is what makes the speech of non-native speaker sound differently. In the process of acquiring the first language we learn how to accommodate our articulatory apparatus in order to produce the phonemes, interestingly, when speaking the native language we almost never think how the sounds are articulated.

The relationship between Chicanos and Central Americans is a unique one because there is often a misconception and racialization that Central Americans and Chicano are one in the same based on physical characteristics and the way their cultures have intertwined. As Alvarado mention in her article, mutual misrepresentation both groups have not been able to fully represent themselves as either Chicano/Chicana or Central American or perhaps a mixture of both. Both Chicanos and Central Americans for years have occupied the same places and have very similar customs leading to the generalization that all brown people are Mexican or of Mexican descent. As stated in Alvarado’s paper “The Central American borderlands include the isthmus through Mexico

Hispanic does not simply mean people deriving from Spanish-speaking countries particularly from Latin America, It 's an infusion of countless cultures and traditions. I myself am considered a Hispanic simply because I am from Mexico, a country that is dominated by the Spanish language. The word Hispanic Unites people who can trace their origin or descent to Mexico, Puerto Rico, Cuba, Central and South America, and other Spanish cultures. This creates a powerful voice/community that when united can create change when threatened for the better of it 's people just like any other community. I can say that what separates the Hispanic community from others is its rich culture and customs.
