Beyond the Isogloss: Trends in Hispanic Dialectology.
Lipski, John M.
Hispania, v72 n4 p800-09 Dec 1989
An overview of contemporary Hispanic dialectology, focusing on phonological phenomena, syntax, classification schemes, and bilingual communities, demonstrates that dialectology has long ceased to be the collection of innumerable surface deviations. It is suggested that dialectology is a theoretical discipline searching for universal principles to describe and explain diversity. (94 references) (CB)
