Of intersectionality, replicability, and holistic perspectives
Methodological considerations in Spanish sociophonetic perception studies
Sociolinguistics is grounded in the premise that social variables are essential to understanding how language works. While early Spanish sociolinguistic studies focused on speech production, there is a growing body of work in Spanish sociophonetics that recognizes the role of speech perception in variation and social identity. As this field grows, it is useful to reflect upon best practices for moving forward. To that end, this chapter considers the field from a theoretical lens, focusing on intersectional approaches (Crenshaw, 1989; Levon, 2015) as it addresses the practical challenge of replicability (Simons, 2014) and offers recommendations for a holistic approach that will poise Spanish sociophonetic perception data to effectively address questions of language variation and change.
