Yod Deletion in Fiji English: Phonological Shibboleth or L2 English?
Tent, Jan
Language Variation and Change, v13 n2 p161-91 2001
Discusses one pronunciation feature shared by the vast majority of speakers of English in Fiji: the deletion of yod in non-primary stressed /Cju/ syllables. Considers variation in yod pronunciation according to ethnicity, age, gender, and education and examines whether yod deletion is a phonological shibboleth of Fiji English or merely a feature of second language English.
