Fonología generativa contemporánea de la lengua española

segunda edición
Rafael A. Núñez Cedeño, Sonia Colina, and Travis G. Bradley, Editors
Fonología generativa contemporánea de la lengua española, in its extensively revised and updated second edition, shows how recent theoretical and methodological advances have enhanced our understanding of Spanish phonology.

This comprehensive book, written completely in Spanish, introduces the latest concepts and principles of phonological analysis and applies these theories to the study of the Spanish language. This new edition includes new chapters on intonation and laboratory phonology and greatly expands the coverage of optimality theory. Exercises and further readings at the end of each chapter, as well as the volume's glossary of linguistic terminology, facilitate effective classroom use.

This book is an essential reference for scholars of Spanish linguistics and will be required reading for advanced undergraduate and graduate students of Spanish. An answer key is available on the GU Press website for teachers only.

"A complete review of the theories of phonology and their application to Spanish. . . . An excellent resource for professors and students alike in graduate level Spanish phonology."—Hispania

"The publication of the first edition of this book filled an important gap. The second edition not only updates references but also includes two new chapters on laboratory phonology and intonation that are very welcome. The inclusion of intonation should set a model for similar books on other languages. All university libraries should have this book; it can be used in Spanish phonology courses of different levels and it is also a useful tool for researchers."—Eulàlia Bonet, professor of linguistics, Autonomous University of Barcelona

"A welcome, much-improved second edition of a work already classic in the field."—Iggy Roca, professor of languages and linguistics, University of Essex

"This extraordinarily didactic textbook, written in transparent Spanish, gives us the development in historical perspective of the generative study of Spanish phonology as well as the results of contemporary theoretically guided laboratory studies and exercises promoting critical thinking."—Jorge M. Guitart, professor of Spanish Linguistics, University at Buffalo: The State University of New York

"This text provides the comprehensive and yet accessible introduction to the phonology of Spanish that everyone interested in the field should know. A must read book."—Juana Gil, Head of the Phonetics Laboratory, Spanish National Research Council (CSIC), Madrid, Spain

"Presented by an accomplished team of editors and scholars, this second edition represents an excellent and comprehensive description of all areas of Spanish phonology, and contains timely additions on intonation and laboratory approaches, and an enhanced and updated chapter on optimality theory. Instructors will likewise appreciate the addition of exercises and suggested further readings for each main chapter and a final glossary of important terms."—D. Eric Holt, University of South Carolina
