Gracias a unas ´ innovaciones metodologicas, Labov logra demostrar que, contrariamente a lo que se hab´ıa mantenido, el cambio ling¨u´ıstico s´ı es El cambio ling¨ uístico 15 ´ sincr´onica, en un contexto que e´ l llama susceptible a la observacion “tiempo aparente”. Las investigaciones de este tipo utilizan la t´ecnica del an´alisis estad´ıstico para comparar sistem´aticamente la forma de hablar de los miembros m´as ancianos de una comunidad ling¨u´ıstica ´ con la de los adultos jovenes, e interpretan las diferencias ling¨u´ısticas entre los dos grupos como representativas de medio siglo de cambio ling¨u´ıstico.

Aun as´ı, la dominacion de los romanos no llega nunca a ser muy fuerte en el norte de la Pen´ınsula, donde pueblos como los astures, los c´antabros y los vas´ de las costumbres cones resisten durante largo tiempo la imposicion romanas, incluida su lengua. Es significativo que sea e´ sta la zona donde varios siglos m´as tarde se desarrolla el romance castellano.

A estos contactos se debe la introduccion de una serie de palabras que se encuentran en pr´acticamente todas 3.
