Aimed at advanced students of Spanish interested in improving their understanding of Spanish phonology and pronunciation, Queacute; bien suena! focuses on providing the simplest analysis of the pronunciation of Spanish sounds. The text's goal is for the student to be able to replicate successfully, to the extent possible, native speakers' typical pronunciation and intonation patterns. Unique usage of symbols from the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) creates a common, understandable vocabulary that students can easily transfer to more generalized studies in linguistics or to the phonetic or phonological study of other languages. Queacute; bien suena! is the first phonology book to incorporate the National Standards for Foreign Languages through practical activities (Aplicaciones) while providing pronunciation and phonetic practice. An icon indicates which of the National Standards are specifically addressed by the activity. Clear, flexible, and user-friendly for both instructors and students, the text features 28 brief, carefully ordered chapters. Each chapter includes clear, concise explanations of concepts, key vocabulary, and abundant examples.Stokes, Jeffery D. is the author of 'quT Bien Suena!
