In their youth, the writers learned the Spanish language as spoken along the border and in college took up Spanish as a major study. At this point, they found that, although in all Latin Americ an sections 'Spanish is Spanish' with its basis in the Spanish of Spain, there are many and varied localisms of hard-to-trace origin in the language used along the Texas and Mexican borders, indeed, more such localisms than are found in the language of other areas. They soon discovered that one who depends solely upon literary Spanish can scarcely converse with Mexicans of the border and rural areas of Texas because of the many slang expressions and localisms which have made this Spanish almo st a separate language....Our purpose in compiling this book is to assist in the everyday activities of ranchers and farmers, most of whom employ Spanish-speaking people part or all of the time." ; VG
