Abstract:

This volume provides a description of the sociolinguistic distribution of
/s/-aspiration in the speech of second-generation Madrid native speakers
living in the neighborhoods of Madrid proper. Geographically Madrid is
situated in the center of the Iberian Peninsula, on the border between the
non /s/-aspirating conservative varieties of Spanish in the north
(Castile-Leon), from the /s/-aspirating innovative varieties of Spanish in
the south (Castile-La Mancha and Andalusia). Spanish spoken within the
Madrid limits is generally considered standard Spanish, however, rates of
/s/-aspiration present in the speech of Madrid subjects is strong evidence
that this dialect belongs to the group of non-standard Spanish dialects.

This book contributes to broadening the limited sociolinguistic knowledge
we have about the relative status of Madrid Spanish on a standard vs.
non-standard variant continuum. /s/- aspiration is analyzed as it relates
to the intralinguistic variable phonetic environment and extralinguistic
variables as well, pointing to specific social groups that seem to be
leaders in this innovative change.

Chapter 1 introduces the research topic, addresses research questions and
motivations for the study. Chapter 2 provides a synchronic and diachronic
description of /s/-aspiration from a theoretical perspective as well as an
overview of previous studies on Castilian Spanish. In Chapter 3 the
procedures, material, and criteria used in interviewing and data collection
are described. Chapter 4 displays the results derived from frequency tables
and statistical analysis of the data. Chapter 5 provides a discussion of
these results as they pertain to each intralinguistic and extralinguistic
variable used in the study. Chapter 6 summarizes the findings, underlines
contributions of the present study and suggests directions for future
research.
