Spanish and Brazilian Portuguese Pronunciation (Hardback)

£89.99
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

This book contrasts variations in Spanish and Brazilian Portuguese pronunciation, using as a reference for discussion the careful speech of news anchors at the national level or the equivalent type of speech: a well-educated style that nonetheless sounds natural. Pursuing an innovative approach, the book uses this view of language as a cornerstone to describe and discuss other social and regional variants relative to that speaking register. It is aimed at speakers of Spanish interested in learning Portuguese and speakers of Portuguese who want to learn Spanish, as well as language specialists interested in bilingualism, heritage languages, in the teaching of typologically similar languages in contrast, and readers with interest in Phonetics and Phonology. The book employs a variety of innovative approaches, especially the use of speech melodies, a user-friendly strategy to describe speech prosody through musical notation.

Professor Simoes is a leading specialist in contrastive studies of Portuguese and Spanish. He has published pioneering works in this area, especially the well-known textbook Pois nao - Brazilian Portuguese Course for Spanish Speakers, used in language programs across the US and abroad for a varied audience of speakers of Spanish, heritage speakers, and people interested in bilingual studies, among others. Currently, Professor Simoes' research work focuses on the speech prosody of these two languages as well as French, Italian and Chinese. His method of analysis is based on data collected from speech transcriptions using musical notation of clear spontaneous speech.
