Bulgarian Judeo-Spanish (BJS) is characterized by its frequent use of structures that are considered highly marked or even ungrammatical in Mainstream Spanish (MS). The analysis of semi-spontaneous data, recorded from four BJS-Bulgarian bilinguals, and the comparison with a same-sized Madrid… read more | Chapter
Olivenza Spanish (OS), spoken in the border zone between Extremadura and Alentejo, is characterized by salient phonological features that can plausibly be interpreted as long-term effects of Portuguese-Spanish bilingualism. We present the results of a formant analysis of unstressed /o/, which is… read more | Chapter
