Lengua, migraciones y mercado de trabajo
Migrations are one of the main ways by which the value of a language expands or diminishes. Economy and sociology of language normally analyse the relation between migrations and the value of the language in multiple settings. Two of the most general of these are, on the one hand, the influence of the linguistic community on the directions and consequences of migrations and, on the other hand, the economical returns of knowing a language on the labour markets in which immigrants participate. In this paper, firstly, the concepts, theories and main empirical results of the studies of those two typical settings are exposed. In the second place, recent tendencies of international immigration and its impact on the Hispanic areas, as either its origin or destination, are described. Finally, in the third section, some first descriptive results of the research on the value of language for immigrants in Spain are presented.
