Name Instructor Course Date Linguistics: Hispandering Introduction The recent years political leaders have resorted to pandering which involves choosing to fake interests in matters or issues that are significant to the demographic group they are interacting with in order to reach out to their interests whether politically economically or culturally. For instance when these political leaders manage to fake interests or concerns that touch on the Hispanic issues economy and culture for their own self-serving reasons it is thus referred to as "Hispandering." From a linguistic anthropological concept "Hispandering" is intentionally or unintentionally used by politicians to influence the Spanish's social life for votes. Hispandering is important because it can use to understand how language shapes ideologies communication social identity and social worlds. Therefore "Hispandering" is a form of Mock Spanish because from a linguistic anthropological perspective politicians in the U.S political discourse use Spanish-inspired words or phrases to Mock Spanish especially in adopting an attractive language with catchy phrases. Additionally linguistics and anthropology play a major role in understanding the term "Hispandering " and why politicians incorporate it with Mock Spanish when looking for votes from the Hispanics. It is also important to note that Mock Spanish comes out as an insult to the Hispanic community and thus the connected. Lastly politicians should focus on the issues that are of concern to Hispanics and not simply connect with them culturally. Works Cited Anguiano Claudia A.
