Men, women and lenition: Gender differences in the production of intervocalic voiced stops in Mexican Spanish
Keywords:Gender differences, Picture identification
AbstractA study was conducted to investigate the effects of gender in the realization of intervocalic in Mexican Spanish. The study conducted a test to demonstrate that significant gender differences existed in the degrees of lenition of the consonants b, d, and g used in Mexican Spanish. Data were collected from a total of six native speakers of a similar variety of the language to conduct the test. Data were collected from an interview where the speakers performed a number of significant tasks. Some of these tasks included a picture identification task and a story-telling task where the speakers were given three sets of sequential pictures and asked to relate the events in each set. These tasks were designed to encourage a casual and conversational style of speech.
