Meeting Description:

Phonic Variation in Contemporary Spanish: first, second, heritage and learner
language

Coordinators: Christoph Gabriel (Mainz), Trudel Meisenburg (Osnabrück) und
Elissa Pustka (Vienna)

The pronunciation of Spanish in the world displays a considerable diversity,
which is not yet systematically explored from a comparative perspective. In
various areas of the Spanish-speaking territory, this phonic variation can be
traced back to language contact, since Spanish has been a second language (L2)
for parts of the population in these areas. This is the case for the speakers
of Quechua in the Andes, the speakers of Galician in Galicia, the Italian and
Chinese immigrants in Argentina and the Moroccan immigrants in Spain. The
inverse situation, with a similarly strong impact on pronunciation, occurs
when Spanish-speaking emigrants assimilate to the language of their
environment and successively become so-called heritage speakers, such as
Mexicans or Puerto Ricans in the United States or Spaniards in Germany. In
addition, due to the importance of Spanish as a global language, millions of
people learn it as a foreign language (SFL). In these cases, phonic
transferences from the first language (L1) to the second language (L2) occur.
The workshop focuses on all aspects of pronunciation which characterize these
constellations, from a phonetic as well as phonological perspective, on the
segmental and prosodic level.

Phonic variation, whether resulting from contact or not, represents a big
challenge for phonology. The digital methods developed for collecting and
analyzing data allow us to document more and more of this variation. At the
same time, the theoretical discussion continues: How to represent the phonetic
characteristics of the different varieties, including the interlanguages of
the learners, in a common phonological framework? How to model the (abstract
or exemplar) representations and corresponding processes (with rules or
constraints)? Is a purely internal approach possible or should external
factors be taken into account?


2nd Call for Papers:

The aim of the workshop is to bring together different approaches toward
phonic variability in Spanish: on one hand to determine the state of the art
and refine research methods, on the other hand to discuss theoretical
challenges and propositions. For this purpose, we intend to include approaches
from contact linguistics, dialectology, sociolinguistics, language acquisition
and teaching.

We invite papers on the following issues and questions:

– Pronunciation of Spanish in contact with other languages
– Dialectal and sociolinguistic variation of Spanish in America and Europe
– Phonetic and phonological aspects of Spanish based Creole languages
– Phonetic and phonological aspects of Spanish as a second language (L2) and
as a foreign language (SFL)
– Phonetic and phonological aspects of Spanish as a heritage language
– Learning the phonology of Spanish as a foreign language (SFL) by
multilingual learners
– Corpus and experimental data for investigating Spanish phonology
– Interrelation between phonic research, phonological modelling and school
practice in teaching Spanish as a foreign language (SFL)
– Foreign language teaching methods in Spanish as a foreign language (SFL)

Abstracts of 1 page (including examples and bibliography) in Spanish, English
or German can be submitted until 25 October 2016 to
christoph.gabriel at uni-mainz.de.
