Primary Instructor:


This advanced Spanish Linguistics course presents a complete overview of the Spanish sound system and establishes the basis for application of principles at the phonetic (especially articulatory and acoustic phonetics) and phonological levels of linguistic analysis. The course content centers on the descriptive properties (consonants; vowels; syllables; stress; and intonation) and phonological processes of the Spanish sound system. A considerable amount of instructional time will focus on acoustic phonetics, hypothesis testing, and spectrographic analysis. Students will apply their knowledge of course content through homework assignments, short research projects, quizzes, and exams. The goal of this course is to provide students with a sound foundation of the Spanish sound system and also with a level of analytical knowledge that enables them to succeed in research-oriented linguistics courses.

This course counts as elective credit for the Spanish minor.
