SummaryIn text s in Castilian Spanish from Basque speaking territories we sometimes find confusions between sibilants. Although it would seem reasonable to attribute them to the Basque influence, in conservative Basque dialects there is a contrast of articulation points in the fricatives that is perhaps identical to that of ancient Castilian. In other areas, however, we find neutralizations, the chronology and extension of which is revised in this article. Interestingly, this phenomenon originates in Bilbao towards 1600, and for this reason Basque-castilian bilingualism appears to be the triggering factor in neutralization in both languages.
