This study explores intervocalic phonemic stop realization in Spanish by monolingual and bilingual speakers in the Peruvian Amazon. We performed an acoustic analysis of sociolinguistic interviews conducted in Spanish with Spanish monolinguals and Yagua-Spanish bilinguals. We focus on Yagua-Spanish… read more | Chapter
This epilogue offers a brief overview of the eleven chapters included in this volume, calls attention to effective commonalities amongst the studies, and highlights innovative strategies for future sociophonetic research.

Previous work on Spanish intonation has not sufficiently addressed the formmeaning patterns that govern pragmatic use in spontaneous interaction. This study is an initial attempt to examine the pragmatic use of polar question intonation in Manchego Spanish conversational speech. First, we document… read more | Article

Liceras and Elena Valenzuela (eds.), pp. 293–312
In the speech of certain female speakers of Peninsular Spanish (PS) one observes the use of hoarse voice, a salient non-modal phonation type. In this paper, we examined its phonetic correlates and social meaning. Among women who have hoarse voice, significantly lower H1-H2 values were found than… read more | Article
Henriksen, Nicholas 2015 : An intergenerational studyLinguistic Approaches to Bilingualism 5:3, pp. 285–321
This paper reports on an acoustic analysis of the phonemic tap-trill contrast (/ɾ/-/r/) for first and second generation speakers of Mexican Spanish who live in the Chicagoland area. First, it is shown that speakers most commonly produce phonemic trills with a single apical occlusion, although there… read more | Article
Henriksen, Nicholas 2015 Secondary correlates of question signaling in Manchego SpanishThe Phonetics–Phonology Interface: Representations and methodologies, Romero, Joaquín and María Riera (eds.), pp. 211–238
This paper reports on an acoustic analysis of secondary prosodic cues of question signaling (baseline slope, speech rate, stressed syllable duration), comparing declarative statements, declarative questions, and wh-questions in Peninsular Spanish. The signaling of questions has been reported as… read more | Article
This paper builds on insights first laid out in Penny’s (1972) work on Old Spanish root vowel morphology. Specifically, it examines the role that verb class had in determining Old Spanish imperfect ending (i.e., -ie vs. -ia). It draws on the knowledge that -ie existed in variation with etymological… read more | Article
