The use of lenition, or initial mutations, is a well-known feature of the Celtic language group. It is less well known, however, that a number of other languages, including dialects of Modern Italian and Modern Greek, also contain initial mutations. This book offers the first systematic
description of mutations in West Romance dialects, specifically in the varieties of Spanish spoken in Gran Canaria.
