Prosodic Interference and Intelligibility in the Speech of Puerto Rico Bilinguals.
Michigan Linguistic Society, v1 n1 Oct 69
In this paper the author examines two kinds of phonological interference observable in the speech of Puerto Rican bilinguals--phonemic and prosodic, and argues that because these two phonological subsystems are structured differently and have different signaling functions, each kind of interference must be treated independently with regard to its semantic and psychological consequences and its relevance for second language acquisition.
