 LINGUIST List 12.1545: Penny, Variation and Change in Spanish   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-04)
Penny presents the idea that the only difference between the concepts of dialect and language is a 'degree of difference' and not a 'difference of kind' because dialects can eventually become languages and over time languages fragment into dialects forming different variations.
The Northern dialect continuum stretched across the northern third of the Peninsula and varieties of this move south were subjected to dialect contact and dialect mixing with other northern dialects and Mozarabic varieties.
Therefore the linguistic development in Spanish America was a dialect mixing based on the origins of the settlers and the extent to which the Seville norm was checked by the Madrid norm.

 The Hispano (al-Andalusian) - Arabic Poetry and Its
The choice of my topic has two reasons: the Andalusian Arabic poetry was the most ardent exponent of the best aspects of the Islamic culture, comparable only to the Islamic architecture the Spanish symbol of which is the mosque of Cordoba.
The second reason is the fact   that the Arabs and Berbers by their conquest of the fertile and wealthy   south of Spain in the 7th century established   cultural, social and commercial contacts with the autochtonous population.The result was the influence of the Islamic civilisation, especially of the poetry.
The fact that the first genre was written in classical   Arabic and the second one in dialect, is a proof of the development of the bilinguism.

 Musics of Algeria: Selected Recordings [MESA Bulletin, July 1995]
When listening to Andalusian music, it is well worth trying to pick out the distinctive deep “growling” of the rabaab, symbol of the old repertoire, which provides a basso continuo foundation for the music.
These later developments in the Andalusian tradition were then further supplemented by local traditions that were composed in increasingly colloquial language though utilizing meters and musical elements of the older tradition.

Moreove r, although Zamboangueño is definitively a creole, as are the remaining Chabacano dialects, its inevitable and undiluted origin in the Manila Bay Chabacano dialects is not a foregone conclusion.

Now the Chavacano dialect coming from Tenante (Moluccas), the city transplanted to the new Ternate near Cavite, were added the Andalucian influences plus all the new words taken from America.

Studies of Andalusian Spanish phonetics and phonology include Carbonero (1982b, 1982c), Lamíquiz (1982), The following features are most commonly associated with Andalusian Spanish, although as will be seen, there is considerable variation within the Andalusian dialect complex.
Although the statement that syllable- and word-final /s/ in Andalusian Spanish is weak and tends to aspirate and disappear is accurate for the entire region, there are many nuances of this phenomenon, distributed regionally, socially, and idiosyncratically, which merit additional attention.

The Qassida however preserved the division of the text in stanzas as in the Andalusian song: the verse (ghson: connect or branch) can include from eight to sixteen verses, a short refrain (harba: launch) offers an alternation which makes it possible to break the monotony of the musical discourse of the Melhoun song.
The qassîda ( laqsida in Moroccan dialect) of the Melhun is based on two essential elements: the overtures preceding it and the parts of which it is composed.
An instrumental prelude ( taqsîm) in free rhythm, played solo on the Ûd or violin must be played before the entry of the orchestra which then plays a song belonging to one of the three recognised forms: the sarrâba, the mawwâl or the tamwila.

 Arachne @ Rutgers - Volume 2, Number 1 - The Role of the City in the Formation of Spanish American Dialect Zones
Modern Andalusian Spanish is characterized by the extreme reduction of syllable-final consonants, leading to massive elision of preconsonantal and word-final /s/, as well as regular loss of word-final /l/ and /r/.
Models of dialect formation which limit the formative period to the first half or even full century of colonial settlement are unrealistic, for incontrovertible evidence exists that linguistic cross-fertilization between Spain and Latin America extended over several centuries.
During the time when the foundations for Latin American dialects were laid, the major cities and towns were a tiny fraction of their present size, and models of language change unthinkable today were viable options in past centuries.
