La Influencia del Sustrato en la Fonetica del Espanol de Mexico (The Influence of the Mexican Substratum Dialects on Spanish Pronunciation in Mexico).
Lope Blanch, Juan M.
Revista de Filologia Espanola, v50 n1-4 p145-161 1967
Spanish spoken in Mexico City is influenced considerably more by indigenous dialects than by archaic or present usage of peninsular Spanish. Six areas in particular fall under this influence: (1) the phoneme "s", treated as a palative and fricative sound, (2) voiced "s", which is dental alveolar and affricate, (3) "t" in liaison with "l", articulated as a plosive, (4) a final "r", voiced as an implosive and vibrant sound, (5) a lapse in tonic and atonic vowels, and (6) a prolonged and tense articulation of "s", especially in final position.
