The term Spanglish has been and continues to be problematic regarding its content. Ever since its coinage in 1954, there have been controversies as to the meaning and the various connotations of this term, resulting in a lack of a precise definition until today. The continuing influx of Spanish-speaking immigrants to the U.S., however, supports the use of the term in public as well as academic environments.
