An introduction to contact linguistics by Donald Winford( Book )

20 editions published between 2003 and 2009 in English and held by 329 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An Introduction to Contact Linguistics examines a wide range of language contact phenomena from both general linguistic and sociolinguistic perspectives. It provides an account of current approaches to all of the major types of contact-induced change. Each chapter describes both the linguistic and social aspects of the contact situation and how they affect the outcome. There is also discussion of the general processes and principles that are at work in cases of contact." "The book treats all of these diverse contact phenomena in a unified empirical and theoretical framework within which both the outcomes and the processes and principles at work in each case can be identified and compared."--Jacket
The structure and status of pidgins and creoles : including selected papers from the meetings of the Society for Pidgin and Creole Linguistics by Society for Pidgin and Creole Linguistics( Book )

17 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 228 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Destined to become a landmark work, this book is devoted principally to a reassessment of the content, categories, boundaries, and basic assumptions of pidgin and creole studies. It includes revised and elaborated papers from meetings of the Society for Pidgin and Creole Linguistics in addition to commissioned papers from leading scholars in the field. As a group, the papers undertake this reassessment through a reevaluation of pidgin/creole terminology and contact language typology (Section One); a requestioning of process and evolution in pidginization, creolization, and other language contact phenomena (Section Two); a reinterpretation of the sources and genesis of grammatical aspects of Saramaccan and Atlantic creoles in general (Section Three); a reconsideration of the status of languages defying received definitions of pidgins and creoles (Section Four); and analyses of aspects of grammar that shed light on the issue of what a possible creole grammar is (Section Five)

Multidisciplinary approaches to code switching( Book )

16 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The volume presents a selection of contributions by leading scholars in the field of code-switching. In the past the phenomenon of code-switching was studied within different subfields of linguistics and they all took their own perspectives on code-switching without taking into account findings from other subdisciplines. This book raises a question of a much broader multidisciplinary approach to studying the phenomenon of code-switching, calls for integration of disciplines; and illustrates how frameworks from one subfield can be applied to models in another. The volume includes survey chapters, empirical studies, contributions that use empirical data to test new hypotheses about code-switching, or suggest new approaches and models for the study of code-switching, and chapters that discuss principles and constraints of code-switching, and code-switching vs. transfer. The book is easily accessible to anyone who is interested in the phenomenon of code-switching in bilinguals."--Jacket

Focus and Grammatical Relations in Creole Languages by Francis Byrne( Book )

2 editions published in 1993 in Undetermined and English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The volume has as its topic, not only the types of formal constructions and devices which creole languages syntactically utilize to achieve constituent focus, but also, in a much broader sense, the many other phenomena and processes found in these languages which serve to highlight sentence-level elements. The book is organized into five sections: 1. verb focus, predicate clefting and predicate doubling; 2. focus and anti-focus; 3. focus and pronominals; 4. discourse patterning; 5. grammatical relations

Exploring the AAVE-Gullah connection : a comparative study of copula variability by Tracey L Weldon( )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This study provides such an examination using Gullah data from South Carolina and sc AAVE data from South Carolina and North Carolina. A number of striking parallels are revealed in this study that support the theory of an sc AAVE-Gullah connection. The sociohistorical evidence and synchronic analyses presented in this study best support the theory that Gullah influenced sc AAVE through language shift

Predication in Caribbean English Creoles by Donald Winford( Book )

2 editions published in 1993 in Undetermined and English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This is the first major study of the conservative or basilectal English creoles of the Anglophone Caribbean since Bailey's (1966) and Bickerton's (1975) descriptions of Jamaican and Guyanese Creole respectively. The book offers a comprehensive, unified treatment of the core areas of CEC predication, including the verb complex, auxiliary ordering, voice and valency, copular and attributive predication, serial verb constructions and complementation. Particularly note-worthy is its utilization of an extremely rich data base and a variety of sources to provide an up-to-date, state of the art accou
Phonological variation in glides and diphthongs of seoul korean : its synchrony and diachrony by Hyeon-Seok Kang( )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This study also shows that Seoul Korean has two different processes of y deletion: categorical deletion and variable deletion. It is claimed that two different processes of y deletion are triggered by two distinct OCP constraints which have rather different strengths. The different strengths of these two constraints are shown within the OT framework using the device of a constraint hierarchy. It is also suggested that y deletion before the vowel e is a sound change in progress. The present study claims that this change is caused by a relative lack of perceptual saliency of this diphthongal sequence
The sociophonetics and phonology of the cavite chabacano vowel system by Marivic Lesho( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The third part of the study shows that Cavite Chabacano speakers have high metalinguistic awareness of this dialectal variation in the vowel system, and that the San Roque dialect has greater prestige. It is argued that substrate influence in the vowel system initially arose through phonetic restructuring during second language acquisition, but that due to sociohistorical and ideological motivations, the substrate features were retained even as Cavite Chabacano phonology otherwise conformed to standard Spanish in terms of other features. The study combines methodology and insights from sociophonetics, historical phonology, second language acquisition, and perceptual dialectology in order to provide a nuanced account of how the Cavite Chabacano vowel system emerged and developed over time. The results demonstrate how substrate influence in creoles can be evident at the phonetic as well as the phonological level, and how sociohistorical factors can shape the development of the language
