Abstract:

This volume contains a collection of papers that address issues in Spanish
phonology from the perspective of laboratory phonology. While volumes on
Spanish phonology have been published in the past, never has one of these
volumes dedicated itself exclusively to experimental studies. This volume
aims not only to present current experimental research on Spanish
phonology, but also to represent the variety of issues in Spanish phonology
that can be addressed experimentally and the numerous types of
experimentation that can be used to further our understanding of
phonological issues.

The issues addressed in this volume include stress placement, rhotics,
lexical storage, acquisition of sociolinguistic variables, epenthesis by
Spanish speakers learning English as a second language, and others.
Experimental approaches include traditional production experiments,
perception experiments, computational modelling, variationist methods, and
others. This variety, both in terms of issues covered and experimental
approaches, ensures that this unique volume is representative of the
breadth of work that is being conducted on Spanish phonology from
experimental perspectives.

While this volume is aimed principally at linguists working on, or
interested in, Spanish phonology, it will also be of interest to
phonologists, phoneticians, cognitive scientists, and others interested in
the contributions that empirical research can make to the study of
phonology. Professional linguists as well as graduate students will find
this volume to be an important addition to their library.

Timothy L. Face is Assistant Professor in the Department of Spanish and
Portuguese Studies, University of Minnesota, USA.
