This study investigates a potential case of near-merger in legacy French data from Frenchville, Pennsylvania.

Toribio, Almeida Jacqueline and Barbara E. Bullock 2016 A new look at heritage Spanish and its speakersAdvances in Spanish as a Heritage Language, Pascual y Cabo, Diego (ed.), pp. 27–50
In this chapter we advocate for the value of new forms of observation for characterizing the Spanish of heritage speakers in the United States.

Bullock, Barbara E. and Almeida Jacqueline Toribio 2015 An experimental approach to hypercorrection in Dominican SpanishHispanic Linguistics at the Crossroads: Theoretical linguistics, language acquisition and language contact, Klassen, Rachel, Juana M. Liceras and Elena Valenzuela (eds.), pp. 251–268
A stigmatized trait of popular Dominican Spanish is the insertion of pre-consonantal or final [s] into a lexical item (e.g. Ja[s]queline). The predominant explanation among phonologists for this uniquely Dominican phenomenon is that the uneducated are ‘lost-s’ speakers who do not know which words… read more | Article
Bullock, Barbara E. and Almeida Jacqueline Toribio 2010 Correcting the record on Dominican [s]-hypercorrectionRomance Linguistics 2009: Selected papers from the 39th Linguistic Symposium on Romance Languages (LSRL), Tucson, Arizona, March 2009, Colina, Sonia, Antxon Olarrea and Ana Maria Carvalho (eds.), pp. 15–24
Theoretical linguistic treatments of Dominican [s]-hypercorrection all assume the hypotheses, advanced by Terrell (1986), that lexical forms in popular Dominican Spanish no longer contain any trace of coda or final /s/ and, thus, speakers randomly insert them into syllable- and word-final position… read more | Article

This acoustic investigation focuses on the preservation of the two low French vowels /a/ vs. /ɑ/ within a vowel system that otherwise manifests striking convergent properties with English. Our acoustic data demonstrate that this inherited contrast is preserved, with a distribution largely… read more | Article
