Letter Writing and Language Change

Edited By Anita Auer, Daniel Schreier, and Richard J. Watts

Title: What Do Foreign Neighbors Say about the Mental Lexicon?
Author: Michael S. Vitevitch
Institution: University of Kansas
Linguistic Field: Phonology
Subject Language: English
Spanish
Abstract: A corpus analysis of phonological word-forms shows that English words have few phonological neighbors that are Spanish words. Concomitantly, Spanish words have few phonological neighbors that are English words. These observations appear to undermine certain accounts of bilingual language processing, and have significant implications for the processing and representation of word-forms in bilinguals.
