Resyllabification in Spanish and its impact on spoken word boundary detection

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.
