What's in a Grammar? Modeling Dominance and Optimization in Contact
Sharma, Devyani
Bilingualism: Language and Cognition, v16 n4 p731-733 Oct 2013
Muysken's article is a timely call for us to seek deeper regularities in the bewildering diversity of language contact outcomes. His model provocatively suggests that most such outcomes can be subsumed under four speaker optimization strategies. I consider two aspects of the proposal here: the formalization in Optimality Theory (OT) and the reduction of contact outcomes to four basic strategies.
