Hi! My name is Angelica. I’m a double major in Spanish and Community, Environment, and Development. I really enjoy experiencing new things, watching movies, and riding horses.
I’m very excited to go to Granada, Spain and examine words that begin with /s/-consonant sequences (#sC). Many Spanish speakers perceive an ‘e’ at the beginning of the word that is not actually there. I would like to look at real words that have the /#sC/ (like 'school’ vs ‘eschool’) and see if Spanish speakers who have learned English can identify whether the /e/ was at the beginning of the word by listening to the sounds when spoken.
