Abstract:

The Development of Phonology in Spanish and Portuguese applies Mayerthaler
and Bailey's seminal work in linguistic naturalness and markedness to child
language development. The book focuses on Spanish and Portuguese in their
many varieties, including their 'daughter' creole and fusion and koine
languages, as it systematically examines the acquisition of a range of
phonological constructions. The account is further enhanced by reference to
historical language change, contact language phenomena and creolization.
This highly integrated study demonstrates the impetus and predictive force
of markedness theory. It is shown that first-language phonological
acquisition, creole phonology, and historical phonology share a large
number of universal features. Biological constraints such as language
universals and markedness considerations interact in a significant manner
in child language, creolization, and historical change with
superstrate/substrate languages, and all are affected by the age of the
speaker and sociocommunicational constraints such as literacy, borrowing,
decreolization, and hypercorrection.
