Abstract:

For many different reasons, speakers borrow words from other languages tofill gaps in their own lexical inventory. The past ten years have beencharacterized by a great interest among phonologists in the issue of howthe nativization of loanwords occurs. The general feeling is that loanwordnativization provides a direct window for observing how acoustic cues arecategorized in terms of the distinctive features relevant to the L1phonological system as well as for studying L1 phonological processes inaction and thus to the true synchronic phonology of L1. The collection ofessays presented in this volume provides an overview of the complex issuesphonologists face when investigating this phenomenon and, more generally,the ways in which unfamiliar sounds and sound sequences are adapted toconverge with the native language's sound pattern. This book is of interestto theoretical phonologists as well as to linguists interested in languagecontact phenomena.
