Geolinguistic Diffusion and the U.S.-Canada Border.
Boberg, Charles
Language Variation and Change, v12 n1 p1-24 2000
Uses data from both sides of the U.S.-Canada border to test a model regarding the way language changes diffuse over space. Two cases are examined: the non-diffusion of phonetic features from Detroit to Windsor and the gradual infiltration into Canadian English of American foreign (a) pronunciations. (Author/VWL)
