Cascadilla Press is delighted to announce the publication of The
Sounds of Spanish: Analysis and Application, by Robert M. Hammond.
This brand new introductory textbook provides a thorough account of
the Spanish language as it is actually pronounced, teaching students
how to speak like native speakers. The book carefully describes the
differing pronunciations of all of the major Spanish dialects, so
students can see the differences in how Spanish is spoken around the
world. This is also the first introductory text to carefully and
systematically compare Spanish pronunciation to American English
pronunciation, helping students connect what they are learning to what
they already know.

The Sounds of Spanish is readable and approachable for students at all
levels. Hundreds of examples in the text show how pronunciation rules
are applied. Recordings of examples on the free companion web site
allow students to match what they see in the book to what they hear in
the recordings.

The table of contents, prefaces, and easy on-line ordering can be
found on our web site at:
