Abstract:
from introduction: "This paper has a dual purpose: 1) to make a contrastive study of the segmental phonemes of Southern Barasano and Spanish as the basis for determining possible areas of language interference that the S. Barasano speaker will have in perceiving and producing Spanish and 2) to compare the antithetical structures of S. Barasano and Spanish in order to highlight the differences in the two languages in regard to relationships of the parts to the whole."
Description:
Comments from Wen & Paula Jones, who took over the language program after Richard Smith. "This is the English version done before [a published Spanish version]. The Spanish version went through further editing before being published and this English version has a section which was not included in the end (pp 15-20) plus a number of data errors that should be corrected. This paper might be of interest to someone who did not read Spanish and is very interested in the language..."
