Discussion and Conclusions
Pages 12

This study attempted to uncover established generational and dialectal differences among Cubans, Dominicans, and Puerto Ricans, living in the New York City area. In this chapter we will discuss the main differences-or absence of differences-uncovered. Particularly, we will dedicate part of the discussion to the generational issue and another part to the dialectal issue, for each one represents one of the goals of this investigation. Nevertheless, these issues will be pointed out and alluded to throughout the discussion because of their interrelated nature. Other important aspects of the study will permeate the discussion as well. We will comment on the limitations of the study, and on some projections and suggestions for future research. Finally, we will present some concluding remarks in light of the most relevant findings of the study.
