Title: Rhythmus und Kontrast im T├╝rkischdeutschen [Rhythm and Contrast in Turkish German]
Written By: Friederike Kern

Series Title: De Gruyter Linguistik - Impulse & Tendenzen 50
Description:

This study draws on the theory and methodology of interactional linguistics to examine the effects of multilingualism on the syntax and prosody of young Germans of Turkish extraction in everyday conversation. The study concludes that prosodic categories such as rhythm and intonation are influential substrate elements. Yet the influence of Turkish is not one of mere transfer. New, rule-based forms have arisen that serve as resources for specific tasks in conversation.
