Prosodic Change and Language Contact
McMahon, April
Bilingualism: Language and Cognition, v7 n2 p121-123 Aug 2004
Using evidence from first-hand experimental work and existing studies, Colantoni and Gurlekian take a tentative but encouraging step towards exploring the role of contact in explaining intonational change. Their central question is whether Buenos Aires Spanish intonation is distinctive relative to other varieties of Spanish; and if so, whether that distinctiveness is due to contact with Italian.
