I am member of a musical ensemble which is planning to perform one or more
Ladino (Judeo-Spanish) songs. I have found some material on the Internet
about basic Ladino phonology -- phonemes and a few processes -- but would
like to know a little more about processes. For instance, does Ladino have
the intervocalic spirantization that Modern Spanish has? Are /t, d, n/
dental or alveolar?

I will be coaching the group on correct pronunciation for the songs. Any
help will be greatly appreciated.
