Collaboratory team "From Africa to Patagonia" announces publication of a chapter in the Routledge Handbook of Spanish Phonology
This Routledge handbook provides a state-of-the-art survey of the field of Spanish phonology and the "From Africa to Patagonia" team is very excited that their research has been included in this foundational volume.
The team has published multiple articles on language, culture, and collaborative research methods. "Language contact in Patagonia: Durational control in the acquisition of Spanish and Afrikaans phonology" is described by PI Nick Henriksen as "one of our more linguistics-oriented articles."
The study's authors are Nicholas Henriksen, Lorenzo García-Amaya, Andries W. Coetzee, and Daan Wissing. The authors wish to acknowledge the four former members of U-M's research community who played a big part in the analysis for this chapter: Pedro Aguilera-Mellado, now Assistant Professor at University of Notre Dame; Lindsey Graham, now PhD student at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign; Sarah Harper, now PhD student at University of Southern California; and Harim Kwon, now Assistant Professor at George Mason University.
The publisher's website calls the handbook "a comprehensive and detailed coverage of Spanish phonology... [which] addresses major burning questions and pressing issues that have arisen in the study of Spanish phonology." The volume is intended for specialists as "an essential reading resource for graduate students and researchers in the field."
