Overview

This comprehensive book provides an introduction to the latest concepts and principles of phonological analysis and applies these theories to the study of the Spanish language. With this helpful text, scholars and teachers of Hispanic linguistics will at last have access to the pertinent phonological issues, arguments, and data -- all in one place, and in Spanish.

This research-oriented study presents the most recent generative phonological theories and uses them to interpret Spanish data. In its discussion of phonological developments since the publication in 1968 of the revolutionary study, Chomsky's and Halle's The Sound Pattern of English, the book demonstrates how newer models of understanding are able to explain linguistic phenomena that older hypotheses could not adequately address.

This essential reference will bring scholars of Spanish linguistics to the forefront of knowledge in phonological research. Containing numerous examples and easily adapted for classroom use, Fonología generativa contemporánea de la lengua española will also be required reading for advanced undergraduate and graduate Spanish students learning Spanish phonology for the first time.

What People Are Saying

Jorge Guitart
This is a unique volume that should serve as both textbook and reference for years to come. It is an excellent introduction to the generative view of the sound pattern of Spanish, clear and didactic and rich in description and theoretical argumentation. Unlike any other treatment...it presents in historical perspective the development of generative ideas about Spanish pronunciation...while showing how Spanish data have been used in theoretical disputes.
—(Jorge Guitart, professor of Spanish Linguistics, State University of New York at Buffalo)
