HISP-S 425  Spanish Phonetics  (3 credits)            LINGUSITICS
Prerequisite:  S310 or equivalent for those students who

This course studies the sound system of Spanish.  Topics include the
articulatory system, the characteristics and description of Spanish
sounds, the patterns of Spanish sounds, the historical development
of modern Spanish from Latin and the variation of the Spanish sound
system.  Attention will also be given to differences between Spanish
and English sounds.  While not a primary goal of the course, a
deeper understanding of how the Spanish sound system works should
help students obtain a more native-like pronunciation.  Course
evaluation is based on homework assignments, a class project and
presentation, and two exams.
