The careful Spanish speech of 20 Barcelonan females (ages 18–27) was elicited through a word-reading task. Goldvarb binomial logistic regression analyses revealed that sensitivity to linguistic factors varied according to Catalan dominance. Moreover, although both variants were favored most by Catalan-dominant speakers, usage patterns among more Spanish-dominant speakers were divergent, consistent with claims of negative social value linked solely to [ɫ]
