This study examined the cross-language comparisons in place attachment by comparing English and Spanish speakers' assessments of five photographs from sites within the Irvine Ranch Natural Landmarks. This study assessed two separate questionnaires conveying the same message in two languages. Two data collection locations, Latino Health Access and Santa Ana College, generated 188 responses.
Language did not factor strongly into the results of place attachment, or its subdomains of place identity, place dependence, and social bonding. With a completed case analysis (CCA), only place dependence for Photo 4, a field of flowers, showed statistically significant difference between the languages. When an available case analysis (ACA) was conducted comparing the data collection locations, results showed statistically significant differences in overall place attachment ratings for Photo 1, a beach scene, and Photo 5, a scene of the trailhead. This suggests that not everyone may feel welcomed or accepted at beaches or trailheads.
