Fourteen eastern andalusian vowels: Production and perception of/I/,/E/,/A/,/O/, and/U/AT word-finally and before underlying/-S/,/-R/, and/-0/in almeria

Journal Article


Abstract


  • The present article investigates the effects of deleting/-S/,/-R/, and/-0/on preceding vowels. For this, the speech of 60 speakers from Eastern Andalusia is analysed acoustically and an experiment is also carried out to analyse perception. From these studies we conclude that 1) deleting/-S/,/-R/, AND/-0/changes the quality of a preceding vowel to different degrees, allowing us to identify 14 different vowels in this geolect; 2) Eastern Andalusian Spanish speakers can identify, without any contextual help, whether or not a vowel is followed by an underlying consonant and these speakers can also distinguish between nine different vowels.D.R.
