Transferability and Linguistic Substrates.
Odlin, Terence
Second Language Research, v8 n3 p171-202 Oct 1992
The applicability of transferability principles to language contact in the British Isles, especially Ireland, is shown with a detailed discussion of absolute constructions, structures with interesting relations between syntax and discourse, and with susceptibility to cross-linguistic influence. Evidence for transferability of absolutes in Hiberno-English strengthens the case for cross-linguistic influence in the Indian subcontinent. (102 references) (Author/LB)
