Sample text

Although it is an adventurous idea, many scholars have found it problematical to apply (see Chambers and Trudgill 1980: 41–5, McDavid 1961), and it has not found universal favour. As a descriptive device, and in cases of straightforward correspondences between one variety and another, some success can be claimed for the diasystematic approach. ³² To use the notation suggested by Weinreich, we can go on to say that these contrasting phonologies make up a single diasystem which expresses their partial similarity and their partial dissimilarity: C(astilian), A(ndalusian) // C /θ/ Ϸ /s/ ------------------- Ϸ /x/ // A /s/ However, although Weinreich’s scheme can handle differences of phonemic inventory (as in the case just examined, where varieties used in Castile have one more phoneme than varieties used in most of Andalusia), there are apparently insuperable difficulties in making it cope with differences of distribution and of incidence.

By their nature, standard languages are the result of processes (see Chapter 7) which have reduced variation to as near zero as possible, so that the picture we receive of past language-states is one of linguistic uniformity. However, our examination of current language-states reveals a picture of variation along a host of parameters. ¹⁰ Thus, for example, the perceived uniformity of Latin is judged to have broken down into a large number of medieval Romance dialects, and in a situation where (written) Latin continued to be the standard, such dialects could be considered to be dialects ‘of Latin’.

If the movement involves sufficient people and is on a broad enough front, the result will be a sharp boundary between the speech of the old and new populations; naturally, depending on the distances involved in the population movement concerned, the difference of speech across the boundary may range from partially impeded communication to total mutual incomprehension. What is described here has of course happened repeatedly in the history of mankind and is responsible for creating major (as well as minor) language frontiers, some as striking as that between the Germanic languages and the Romance family or between Hungarian and Slavic/Germanic/Romance languages in Europe.
