Can anyone tell me what the Alleantic language is? I think it might be a
word for Huarpe, an extinct language of Mendoza, Argentina.

I would value any recommendations on a textbook to be used in an
introductory Spanish phonetics course.

I left the US some time ago and have lost touch with available
textbooks. Which of them come with tape or CD?

Many Thanks
