RAMIREZ ESPINOSA, Alexánder  e  ALMIRA VAZQUEZ, Alina. /s/ variation in word juncture in Caleño Spanish: a sociolinguistic insight. Leng. [online]. 2016, vol.44, n.1, pp.11-33. ISSN 0120-3479.

/s/ variation in word juncture in Caleño Spanish: a sociolinguistic insight The glottal pronunciation of the syllable initial /s/ is an identitary characteristic of the Spanish spoken in Cali, Colombia, as claimed by the oral tradition of the speakers of this variant (Ramírez & Almira, 2011). This pronunciation has permeated the cultural variety, and therefore, it makes part of the speech community's set of norms. In order to establish the phonological rules that determine /s/ variation, a research study was conducted through the analysis of 10427 tokens, in which /s/ appears in word juncture in spontaneous speech. This article aims at reporting the findings of such a study
