Principles of Variationism for Disambiguating Language Contact Phenomena: The Case of Lone Spanish Nouns in Catalan Discourse.
Arroyo, Jose Luis Blas; Tricker, Deborah
Language Variation and Change, v12 n2 p103-40 2000
Using the variationist comparative method, the status of ambiguous lone Spanish-origin nouns in Catalan discourse is determined by analyzing their distribution and conditioning and by comparing them to their counterparts in unmixed Spanish or in multiple-word code switches. Suggests that the grammar of these nouns is Catalan, and their categorical status is that of loanwords and not of code switches. (Author/VWL)
