My Apple IPad has a "news" app built in. It has news stories from many sources. I've seen Latinx in stories about Trumps misadventures with white supremacy.1) It's omnipresent now.
2) It's pronounced "La-TEEN-ex".
Extreme-left politics is ubiquitous in US academia. That doesn't reflect the US in general. It definitely does not reflect the US Hispanic population in general.It is now quite common in many contexts and ubiquitous in academia.
I grew up in New Mexico, I have lived in southern California, and I live in Texas now. As mentioned above, it's not primarily the people themselves that are using it. It's academics and some "serious" journalists primarily.Perhaps it is more widely used in south Texas, New Mexico and southern California, areas with a larger Latino presence.
I think in Spanish it would have to be pronounced la-teen-ek-ees, so it looks like Spanglish to me. What is the article? Couldn't be las or los, so maybe lxs latinx? Ridiculous creation of people who aren't using the word in a Spanish sentence.Latinx is a gender neutral term that is being used as a means of being more inclusive and moving away from the gendered term. It is pronounced “Lah-teen-ex”, and allows for the Spanish language to move beyond gender binaries.
But if the "x" or more likely the "+" was written over the "o" in Latino, then it is not really language related. I am suggesting the "+" as it, along with a large circle is the sign of a female (male is the circle with an arrow). If that is in fact the source for Latinx, then it is cultural and not language in origin.I think in Spanish it would have to be pronounced la-teen-ek-ees, so it looks like Spanglish to me.
