Abstract [en]

In this article it is discussed whether the phonological changes involved in dialect levelling occur in a certain order. To explore the issue, the author has analysed the pronunciation of four generations of a family in southern Skåne. The variables studied have been divided into two groups. In the first, the difference between standard Swedish and traditional dialect is at a phonemic level, as for example in the word pairs ett/itt 'one and ut/ud 'out'. In the second group, the difference is instead at the phonetic level: front or back r, and long vowels realised as monophthongs or diphthongs.

The study suggests that phonemic adaption (which is complete in the youngest generation) precedes phonetic adaption (which has only just begun in the data examined).
