The linguistic landscape that I took a picture of was around the gym that I go to. Its above of a furniture store the English letters are all capitalized and in bold. And then there is another language under it both languages are in white and the background is in some type of blueish color. The address is right under that as well as a phone number to contact the store. It is a multilingual sign since it has more than one language it is also an authorized sign put up by shop management.
I feel like the sign shows that there are more English-speaking people in the neighborhood since the English is way bigger then the words in the other language and its first. Also, that there are people in the neighborhood that speak that other language because if they really wanted to the sign could have just been left with just English. instead they didn’t they put the other language too, so it shows that there are people that would benefit from having the other language on the sign.
The neighborhood that the picture was taken in was Steinway in Queens its actually really popular. there are a lot of stores around there about 4 different gyms, supermarkets a few nail salons, clothing stores, two different train stations to get there and two different busses get you there as well. English is really the most common language there but if you walk a few blocks down you will find a lot more stores with that type of language in the front like delis, hookah lounges and restaurants.
was my description of my picture good?
is there anything i should add?
