dc.description.abstractThis paper explores final consonant deletion in Southern Spain. Deletion of final lsi and Idl are considered markers of the Southern Spanish accent in the eyes of the speakers. However, previous research by Hualde et al. (201 0) and Harris-Northall (1990) conflicts on final lsi deletion and fails to significantly touch on final Idl deletion. I show that final lsi deletion is not strongly correlated to southern Spanish accents, and final Idl deletion is not correlated at all. These authors propose that Inl velarization can occur word-finally, but labialization carmot. Lipski (1986) proposes a more specific pattern of Inl velarization. I explore the range of In! realization found among my participants and show that realization as [1JI is more common than generally believed, and confirms Lipski's account. I also briefly explore evidence that realization as [m] is also a possibility.en_US
