The Primacy of Aspect Hypothesis Revisited: Evidence from Language Shift.
Bayley, Robert
Southwest Journal of Linguistics, v18 n2 p1-22 Dec 1999
Reports on a test of the prototype account of the Spanish of U.S. Mexican-origin children undergoing language shift. Analysis of narratives from children aged 4 to 12 suggests that the prototype account also predicts the loss of morphological distinctions in language shift. The pattern of tense marking in the Spanish of children undergoing language shift to English is a mirror image of the pattern shown for Anglo children acquiring Spanish. (Author/VWL)
