Phonetik und Phonologie des Spanischen [Spanish Phonetics and Phonology]
This textbook presents the fundamentals of sound production and sound description (phonetics) and the function of speech sounds in the language system (phonology) using Spanish as example. It is intended primarily for students of Spanish in the beginning semesters without any special knowledge of phonetics. To facilitate access to Spanish-language reference literature, the main terms are given in Spanish as well.
