5.0 out of 5 stars The best Spanish phonetics / phonology book on the market, April 5, 2012
This review is from: Sonidos en contexto: Una introducción a la fonética del español con especial referencia a la vida real (Spanish Edition) (Paperback)
I teach an advanced Spanish-language pronunciation seminar using this book, and have written a professional review of this book appearing in Hispania. Compared to other books dealing with this very dry, difficult topic, Morgan has done a truly wonderful job of making the systematic study of pronunciation both approachable and useful to students looking to understand the Spanish sound system:

This book offers a thorough and complete descriptive analysis of the Spanish sound system, including transcribed readings, ordinary readings for phonetic transcription, articulatory phonetic description, phonological distributions, and phonology problems. However, what really sets this textbook apart are its practice activities, strategically placed within the text to allow students to practice the content covered in each chapter.
