This study explores the perceptual development of intonation in questions and statements in L2 Spanish. It presents cross-sectional data from 189 L2 learners from five different proficiency levels and 10 Spanish native controls. Participants performed an intonation matching task consisting of… read more | Chapter
González, Carolina and Lara Reglero. 2020. The licensing of wh-in-situ questions: Intonational evidence from Spanish. Hispanic Linguistics: Current issues and new directions, Morales-Front, Alfonso, Michael J. Ferreira, Ronald P. Leow and Cristina Sanz (eds.), pp. 53–74
This project investigates the intonational characteristics of information-seeking wh-in-situ and yes/no questions in Spanish. Data from eight Spanish-Basque bilinguals show that while the former tend to display final rising contours, the latter are primarily circumflex, especially in participants… read more | Chapter
This project provides a preliminary examination of the intonational characteristics of information-seeking, echo-repetition and echo-surprise wh-in-situ questions in Spanish. The analysis of 120 questions from 4 female participants from Northern Peninsular Spanish shows that information-seeking… read more | Chapter
González, Carolina and Christine Weissglass. 2017. Chapter 6. Hiatus resolution in L1 and L2 Spanish: An optimality account. Romance Languages and Linguistic Theory 12: Selected papers from the 45th Linguistic Symposium on Romance Languages (LSRL), Campinas, Brazil, Lopes, Ruth E.V., Juanito Ornelas de Avelar and Sonia M. L. Cyrino (eds.), pp. 79–96
This study investigates the acquisition of vowel-vowel sequences across words in twenty-five L2 Spanish learners. Building on González & Weissglass (2016), it analyzes their acoustic realization and examines the incidence of hiatus maintenance, hiatus resolution, and glottal stop epenthesis in L2… read more | Chapter
Barbero, Nagore and Carolina González. 2015. Acoustic analysis of syllable-final /k/ in Northern Peninsular Spanish. The Phonetics–Phonology Interface: Representations and methodologies, Romero, Joaquín and María Riera (eds.), pp. 151–170
One of the realizations of coda /k/ in Northern and Central Spain is the interdental voiceless fricative [θ]. Although this variant has been investigated from a sociolinguistic and phonological point of view, acoustic investigation is non-existent. This paper presents preliminary findings of an… read more | Article
This paper examines various instances of prevocalic advancement in Chilean Spanish and Proto-Romance. It proposes that velar fronting is driven by the feature [−back] (Calabrese 2005), while [+front] is involved in palatalization. When both features are involved concurrently, palatalization occurs… read more | Article
In NorthCentral Peninsular Spanish there are at least three different realizations of coda /b d ɡ/: voiceless fricatives (Northern dialect), voiced fricatives (Central dialect I), and voiced stops (Central dialect II). This paper proposes an analysis of the three patterns within the framework of… read more | Article
