Primary Instructor:

This course is an undergraduate-level introduction to Spanish phonetics and phonology. The main goal of this class is to understand the sound pattern of Spanish as well as to apply this new knowledge to the practice and improvement of pronunciation. Participants will learn about the supra segmental and segmental features of Spanish, and will gain experience in phonetic transcription. They will be required to complete oral and written homework, and three written exams. Students will record a sample of their Spanish at the beginning and end of the semester. These speech samples will be used to determine weaknesses and strengths in the students’ pronunciation. After successful completion of this course, students will: be familiar with all the sounds of Spanish and how they are organized into the phonological system of the language; they will apply the rules of Spanish pronunciation to their own speech-at least in controlled contexts-and be able to use the articulatory descriptions in the teaching of Spanish to English speakers; they will understand the principles of Spanish orthography, including accentuation; they will use appropriate terminology to express general notions of phonology and phonetics; they will recognize the dialectal diversity of Spanish in Iberia and the Americas, as well as the phonetic features that characterize the most salient dialects.
