Abstract:Moreover, during the 1990s, all non-English language neighborhoods (except for German- and Italian-language neighborhoods in Chicago) grew particularly in the suburbs. Moreover, contrary to the model of spatial assimilation, some of the language neighborhoods in the central city shrunk while suburban non-English language neighborhoods rapidly grew. Many of these non-English language neighborhoods overlap in geographic area with the result that many geographically bounded areas contain very linguistically diverse populations. Overall, the results suggest that the model of spatial assimilation needs to be reformulated to include cities that are experiencing major immigration for the first time, such as Atlanta.
