Markedness and Salience in Language Contact and Second-Language Acquisition: Evidence from a Non-Canonical Contact Language.
Deumert, Ana
Language Sciences, v25 n6 p561-613 Nov 2003
Argues that the study of contact varieties of a language are relevant to understanding of second language acquisition and use, because non-canonical contact languages are often situated on a continuum between pidginization and the more general processes of untutored second language acquisition. Data on participle regularization in Namibian Black German and other German oriented contact varieties are discussed. (Author/VWL)
