Summary

Chapter 6 provides an overview of Yungueño Spanish, Chota Valley Spanish and Chincha Spanish declarative intonation in terms of the realization of pitch accents and phrase boundary tones. The inventory of these phonological targets in these vernaculars is much more reduced than what has been encountered in other native (non-contact) varieties of Spanish (Aguilar et al. 2009; Beckman et al. 2002; Prieto & Roseano 2010). The speakers of these dialects show evidence of duplicating nuclear and prenuclear pitch accents, as well as boundary configurations, at both levels of phrasing (i.e., intermediate and intonational phrases) (Sessarego & Rao 2016; Rao & Sessarego 2016, 2018; Sessarego, Butera & Rao 2019; Butera, Sessarego & Rao 2020). The nature of these phenomena is analyzed as pertaining to the phonologypragmatics interface, since both phonological and discourse features are involved.
