My ph.d-project with the working title “Danish in Argentina or Argentina Danish? An analysis of convergence and non-convergence in spoken Danish in Argentina” is part of the larger research project ‘Danish Voices in the Americas’. Based on approximately 100 interviews with descendants of Danish emigrants, my project aims at a description of their synchronic language use with regard to the effects of the contact with Argentine Spanish, but also with respect to internal change (i.e. change that is not due to language contact).
Fields of interest
- Contact linguistics
