Yesterday I posted a link to <a href="http://www.blackbritain.co.uk/news/details.aspx?i=1709&c=caribbean&h=Trinidad+aiming+for+spanish+to+be+official+language
“>a British newspaper report that the nation of Trinidad & Tobago plans to change its official
language from English to Spanish by 2020.
I have just got an email from a Trinnie (= Trinidadian) telling me
that this is not quite so. The aim is for Spanish to become an
official language, not the official language. My correspondent
refers me to this article.
