SPAN3410S

Spanish Phonetics

THIS COURSE IS TAUGHT AT MILLS CAMPUS

In this class, the students will learn basic linguistic tools to analyze the phonetic and phonological systems of Spanish. Topics include the phonetic alphabet, syllabification, and thorough review of Spanish spelling system and accent marks. Students will use these linguistic tools to diagnose and correct possible deficiencies in the pronunciation of Spanish that give the student a non-normative accent. We will also study the range of regional and social accents and dialects of Spanish. This contextualization of phonetics within the geographical and social realities of the Spanish-speaking world make this class a perfect complement to the study of the cultures and literatures that are the core of the humanities-oriented curriculum.
