Title:Spanish Influence on Copala Trique
Abstract:Spanish contact has added to the lexicon of Copala Trique in four ways: about 300 direct loanwords, mainly nouns; several loan translations; extension of meaning of about 50 native words; formation of about 100 descriptive phrases. In contrast, Spanish contact has had virtually no effect on the grammatical structure. Spanish contact has, however, affected the phonological system in several ways. Loanwords have added bilabial stops, and have reinforced the emerging contrast between fortis and lenis stops and sibilants. They have also introduced many new consonant clusters, and a new distribution for h (in the onset of ultimas). In borrowed words, Spanish antepenult, penult, and ultima stress correspond regularly to three different Copala Trique patterns of tone contour and vowel length. S/ Barbara Hollenbach
