Texas' population growth over the past half-century has been nothing short of astonishing. Individuals from all over the world now call Texas home, bringing their culture with them. The state has also seen significant population growth among minority populations. Texas has become a "majority-minority" state and now ranks as the fourth most diverse state in the US, behind only Hawaii, California, and New Mexico. Perhaps nowhere is this diversity as readily apparent as in the languages that Texans speak.
