Title: Formas sonoras
Subtitle: Mapa fónico de las lenguas mexicanas (Acompañado de CD-ROM)
Written By: Esther Herrera Zendejas
Series Title: Estudios de lingüística VI

This book is devoted to the phonological analysis of six Mexican languages:
Totonac, Mixtec, Chichimec, Mixe, Amuzgo and Chinantec. For all the
languages, the study includes the phonetic structure of the major features
of the consonant systems; measurements of the vowel structures and the most
important phonological process. The book includes a CD-ROM with the
sonorous files structured in three links: 1) Patrones Fónicos, 2) Lenguas,
and 3) Rasgos compartidos y no compartidos. The first one ties to every
chapter in the book. The other two are autonomous and can be consulted by
themselves. Lenguas gives an outline of the principal phonological features
in every language. It includes the regional maps where the language is
spoken. The last link (Rasgos compartidos y no compartidos) has a
typological view, so it brings together what the six languages have in
common in vowels, consonants and tone.
