Abstract:

Spanish Phonology offers a comprehensive analysis of a variety of crucial
issues in the phonology and morphophonology of various dialects of Spanish
including syllable types, syllabification algorithms, syllable repair
mechanisms, syllable mergers, nasal assimilation, obstruent vocalization
and spirantization, obstruent neutralization, diphthongs and hiatuses,
glide formation, onset strengthening, aspiration, rhotics, velarization,
plural formation, word classes, and diminutives.

Written from the perspective of optimality theory and with syllabic
structure at its core, this volume highlights recent advances in Spanish
phonology.

The book includes margin notes to highlight key points and a glossary of
constraints. Study questions, lists of the most influential sources for
each chapter, and topics for further research. Spanish Phonology is
intended as core reading for advanced phonology courses in Spanish
linguistics, general linguistics, and related areas such as bilingualism,
language variation, language acquisition, and speech and hearing.
