Burns’ article investigates the relationshibp between loanword adaptation and phonological borrowing in an enclave of the Mexican Plautdietsch community Texas. Burns shows that the novel Mexican Spanish pattern of loanword adaptation and phonological borrowing entered the community as a result of the unique structure of phonological representation associated with advanced bilingualism. In this article, Burns proposes an expansion of models of loanword adaptation to account for outcomes involving restructuring of heritage languages. The article can be accessed at the link below.
