Lorenzo García-Amaya and Sean Lang have published an article entitled “Filled pauses are susceptible to cross-language phonetic influence: Evidence from Afrikaans-Spanish bilinguals” in the journal Studies in Second Language Acquisition. Their article investigates the effects of long-term bilingualism on the production of filled pauses (e.g., uh, um, eh, em) in the speech of Afrikaans-Spanish bilinguals from Patagonia, Argentina. Their findings derive from the data collected by From Africa to Patagonia Collaboratory-funded fieldwork trips.
