Language contact at the articulatory level? A planned ultrasound study of advanced tongue root vowels
This talk will present the literature and reasoning behind a study I plan to carry out in Ghana at Easter. I plan to conduct an ultrasound tongue imaging study of advanced/retracted tongue root vowels in Akan, and 'tense/lax' vowels in Ghanaian English and British English. The study aims to look for evidence (or lack of) of language contact between Akan and Ghanaian English in the articulation of vowels. Here, I invite comment and criticism on the design of my study with the aim of strengthening the data collection and subsequent analysis.
