Justin Pinta

Graduate Teaching Associate
Graduate Student

Justin's research addresses language contact between Spanish and various languages of the Americas. His primary recent focus concerns the mutual phonological and morphosyntactic effects of the contact between Correntinean Guarani and Spanish and the sociolinguistic factors which have impacted the transmission of Correntinean Guarani. Additionally, his research addresses the relationship between language ideologies and linguistic structure, as well as minority language maintenance and language shift. In addition to Correntinean Guarani, he is interested in how these issues manifest themselves in Santiagueño Quechua and Patagonian Welsh.
