ANU Language Teaching Forum

Resyllabification in Spanish and its impact on spoken word boundary detection
  • José María Lahoz-Bengoechea, Universidad Complutense de Madrid (Spain)
  • Tuesday 14 August 5pm-6pm
  • Baldessin Precinct Building ANU Room 3.03
Spanish exhibits processes of resyllabification that provoke misalignments between word boundaries and syllabic structure. That happens when word-initial vowels are re-grouped with the end of the previous word (e.g. mis amigos ‘my friends’ is syllabified mi.sa.mi.gos). This misalignment poses serious difficulties to students of Spanish as a second language when it comes to processing someone else’s speech, because it may take them too long to segment the continuum into words.
 
All interested teachers and learners of languages welcome
