ROMLING 410 — Spanish Phonetics and Phonology
Section 001, REC
Introduction to Spanish Phonetics and Phonology.

Instructor: Gallego,Olga; homepage

WN 2007
Credits: 3

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 segmental and suprasegmental features of Spanish, and will become experienced in phonetic transcription. They will apply the rules of Spanish pronunciation to their own speech (in controlled as well as open-ended contexts), and will undergo a diagnostic test at the beginning and end of the term that will determine their success in applying the knowledge and practice of these rules to the improvement of their pronunciation. Students will understand the principles of Spanish orthography, and will recognize the dialectal diversity of Spanish in Iberia and the Americas, as well as the phonetic features that characterize the most salient dialects. The course includes graded written and oral homework assignments, two partial exams and a final exam.

Enforced Prerequisites: Three courses chosen from: SPANISH 300 and higher (excluding SPANISH 308) or study abroad equivalent; up to two RCLANG 324 elections may count for this prerequisite.
