In spite of enormous innovation in phonological theory and phonetic analysis, in many ways the teaching of Spanish pronunciation has changed little over the last generation. This 'flea circus' presents a wide range of ideas for improving the content, approach, and delivery method in introductory courses in Spanish phonetics, phonology, and remedial pronunciation. Emphasis is placed on research findings that have not been incorporated into popular texts and curricula, and suggestions are made in the areas of segmental phonology, suprasegmental phonology, dialectology, orthography, technology, and pedagogy.
