Puerto Rican Spanish Phonology; a Case Study on Phonological Awareness Intervention

Bou, Nydia V.

OBJECTIVE #1: Understand the benefits of phonological awareness intervention in phonologically

disordered children.

OBJECTIVE #2: Review key aspects of Puerto Rican Spanish phonology including examples of

phonological processes. When speaking about phonological processes, it is extremely important to

know the insights of the target language. Recognizing what’s different vs. what’s

disordered among a language community is important in the diagnostic process.

According to the year 2000 Census, Spanish is a language spoken by approximately

27 million speakers.
