Subject: Central Mexican Phonology
Question: Hello! I have a question concerning the Mexican dialect of Spanish.
I'm trying to figure out what to call a particular sound I'm
hearing. I'm not sure how to represent this, but it sounds like an
r going to a soft th or sh, like rth or rsh. It seems to only occur
at the end of words and before a pause. From what I've been able to
figure out, it seems like it might be an assibilated r, but I'm
just not sure. Does anyone know what this particular sound might
be? Thank you!
