Abstract:

Sonido y sentido lifts the learning of Spanish pronunciation for American
English-speaking students to a new level, with support of an accompanying
CD. Written in Spanish by a native speaker who is a leading figure in the
field of Spanish phonology, this introduction to Spanish phonetics and
phonology will improve both the pronunciation and understanding of spoken
Spanish by demonstrating the specific ways in which the sound pattern of
Spanish differs from English. Notable in that it explains the "why" of
pronunciation with specific information on how the sounds of Spanish are
organized--it also highlights the most important differences among varieties
within the Spanish-speaking world. Together, the book and CD emphasize the
sounds and sound combinations that are most problematic for English
speakers learning Spanish.

In addition to a clear theoretical analysis of Spanish phonology, Sonido y
sentido introduces the fundamental concepts of language, Spanish language,
and the teaching and learning of phonetics--Spanish phonetics in particular.
Utilizing the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) throughout the text to
make for more precise phonetic descriptions, Guitart also discusses the
relation between both the physical and psychological aspects of pronunciation. 

Sonido y sentido contains exercises, both transcription and pronunciation
drills, and each chapter concludes with a section, "Para pensar," which
tests comprehension of the concepts presented. Answers to the "Para pensar"
exercises appear in a separate appendix. A glossary of technical terms, a
subject index, and a basic bibliography of Spanish phonetics and phonology
round out this fresh and rewarding contribution to learning the Spanish
language.
