Early coda production in bilingual Spanish and Basque

image of Early coda production in bilingual Spanish and Basque

The study of the codas in the spontaneous speech of a Basque-Spanish bilingual child reveals that they are produced early and continue to develop gradually, in both languages, during the period studied (1;09–2;01). The inter-linguistic differences attested regarding the inventory of segments, the frequency of the target-like productions (which increase faster in Basque than in Spanish), the differentiated effect of stress in the two languages, as well as the phonological processes involved in the adult-dislike productions of sibilants suggest a language specific development in the production of codas, compatible with a separate phonological representation of the phonological systems. Keywords: bilingualism; phonological system; syllable complexity; phonological processes; consonant codas
