- Indigenous English in Canada: A Case Study of Nain, Labrador.
Interdental stopping and verbal -s are enregistered features of Newfoundland English (Clarke and Hiscock 2009) while the adjectival intensifiers right and some are considered trademarks of the dialect (Clarke 2010). I compare the Nain data against provincial norms, while considering transfer effects, since some Nain residents are native speakers of Inuttitut.
