The Status of Quality and Length in Spanish Vowels
Resnick, Melvyn C.; Hammond, Robert M.
Linguistics, 156, 79-88, Aug 75
Speech samples were obtained from college student Miami-area Cuban informants in an attempt to test the hypothesis that a compensatory phonemic change takes place in certain Spanish dialects in which syllable-final and word-final /s/ appear optionally as zero. Vowel system, distinction (open versus closed), and length are looked at. (SCC)
