Abstract


Abstract
In this article, we ask how asymmetrical bilinguals with Faroese (FA) as their L(anguage)1 and Faro-Danish (FADA) as their first L2 pronounce the Danish (DA) long vowels. We investigate which of the following three alternatives reflects the actual situation: 1. there is an interaction between the two phonetic subsystems; 2. speakers use Danish pronunciation; or 3. they simply impose the Faroese phonological system onto their Faro-Danish pronunciation.

By describing the vowel system of Faro-Danish, this study contributes significantly to the yet unexplored field of Faro-Danish phonetics, as well as revealing some of the linguistic dynamics that characterizes the bilingual situation in the Faroe Islands.


Úrtak
Her verður kannað, hvussu asymmetriskir tvímælingar við føroyskum sum M(ál)1 og føroyskum-donskum sum M2 bera fram donsk sjálvljóð. Vit kanna, um sínámillum ávirkan er ímillum tær fonetisku skipanirnar, ella um talandi nýta eina danska úttalu ella ota føroyskar framburðarvanar niður yvir føroyskt-danskt.

Henda lýsing okkara av føroyskum-donskum leggur eitt klípi afturat lýsingini av hesum variantinum av donskum.
