Though there has been considerable research on Spanish phonetics and phonology, until now, there has been no in-depth and complete descriptive reference work. Fonética y fonología descriptivas de la lengua española, volumes 1 and 2, are a comprehensive reference, written in Spanish, describing the phonetics and phonology of Spanish. Edited by Juana Gil and Joaquim Llisterri and including contributions from an international group of scholars, these books provide a comprehensive overview for understanding topics across Spanish phonetics and phonology, making clear what further research is needed.
Together, these volumes offer a survey of Spanish descriptive phonetics and phonology. Volume 2 focuses on the suprasegmental properties on the suprasegmental properties of speech such as word stress, intonation, speaking rate, pauses and rhythm. The topics are examined from different angles: their phonetic description, their phonological analysis, their variation, and also their function in speech. Intonation, in particular, is also studied from the point of view of pragmatics, discourse and conversation analysis.
With state-of-the-art information on all topics related to the sounds of Spanish, Fonética y fonología descriptivas de la lengua española will be a valuable resource for researchers, students, and scholars of Spanish linguistics who wish to deepen their understanding of the phonetic and phonological characteristics of all the varieties of the Spanish language.

"These two volumes edited by Juana Gil and Joaquim Llisterri bring together many of the best specialists in the field. They offer a balanced view of both segmental and prosodic aspects of Spanish pronunciation. With a focus on readability and internal cohesion, they systematically make room for variation and dialectal considerations. A veritable tour de force."—Jacques Durand, emeritus professor of phonology, University of Toulouse-Jean Jaurès
"These two volumes offer the most comprehensive treatment to date of Spanish phonetics and phonology, providing a panoramic description of the Spanish sound system, including its regional and social variation. They will undoubtedly be an indispensable resource for linguists, as well as for those working in related fields."—Carol A. Klee, professor of Hispanic linguistics, Department of Spanish and Portuguese Studies, University of Minnesota,
