A Contrastive Analysis of the French and Spanish Phonetical and Phonological Systems.
Ainsa, Serge M.
This research is an analysis of the French and Spanish phonological, phonetic, and graphemic systems. A contrastive analysis is used to show the differences that can create problems to the Spanish speaker learning French. For the benefit of Spanish speakers, all of the materials included have been prepared in Spanish. The first chapter defines the problem of teaching French to the Spanish speaker. The second chapter reviews the literature about French and Spanish phonology and morphology. The third chapter discusses the vocalic and consonantal differences between the two languages, followed by: (1) a solution to help Spanish speakers learn the new phonemes and allophones, and (2) appropriate phological and phonetic drills. The fourth chapter discusses the differences in intonation and includes practice drills. (Author/NCR)
