Abstract

In this paper, we provide instrumental evidence from an experiment and a spontaneous speech study that, in Andalusian Spanish, /s/ aspiration consistently implies postaspiration in following voiceless stops. In order to explain the occurrence of this sound pattern, we offer a gestural analysis based on the notion of the syllable as a unit of articulatory coordination. Finally, we briefly contrast the Andalusian pattern with parallel sound sequences in other languages and Spanish dialects, and raise the question of an ongoing sound change.
