About this item

Linguists and related language scholars examine the Spanish dialects spoken on the island of Cuba and by Cubans in the US and elsewhere as they differ from mainstream Spanish and even from other closely related Caribbean Spanish dialects. Cuban Spanish has been influenced by the Arawak language of the pre-Columbian Taíno culture on the island, they say, as well as by the West African Yoruba language of slaves, and by the massive immigration of Spaniards from the Canary Islands. The studies cover phonological and phonetic variation, morphosyntactic variation, lexical variation, and heritage language acquisition. Annotation ©2018 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
