Abstract:

The historical spread of Spanish and Portuguese throughout the world
provides a rich source of data for linguists studying how languages evolve
and change. This volume analysis the development of Portuguese and Spanish
from Latin and their subsequent transformation into several non-standard
varieties. These varieties include Portuguese- and Spanish-based creoles,
Bozal Spanish and Chinese Coolie Spanish in Cuba, Chinese Immigrant
Spanish, Andean Spanish, and Barranquenho, a Portuguese variety on the
Portugal-Spain border. Clancy Clements demonstrates that grammar formation
not only takes place in parent-to-child communication, but also,
importantly, in adult-to-adult communication. He argues that cultural
identity is also an important factor in language formation and maintenance,
especially in the cases of Portuguese, Castilian, and Barranquenho. More
generally, the contact varieties of Portuguese and Spanish have been shaped
by demographics, by prestige, as well as by linguistic input, general
cognitive abilities and limitations, and by the dynamics of speech community.
