Learning outcomes

“An introduction to Spanish phonetics and phonology”.
The course, after concisely presenting some basic sociolinguistic concepts (in particular, variation, current and standard use), intends to outline the phonetic and phonological systems of contemporary standard Spanish. The fundamental concepts of Spanish phonetics, exemplified in detail with transcriptions, as well as those elements emerging from a contrastive analysis between the Italian and the Spanish systems, will be examined. Problems arising from the existence and the use of different phonetic alphabets will also be considered.
