    Default Geografía en la calle

    Here is a geography quiz by Carlos Durán.







    The questions are easy, simple and most could not answer. What language do they speak in Spain? The Panama Canal is in what country? Really?


    Estas preguntas no son tan difíciles. Bueno, yo estaba sorprendida que algunas personas no pudieran contestar.


    **Also note these are Dominicans being asked these questions. Observe the different speech patterns.

    Here is a glance at the Phonetics of the Dominican Republic. The video shows examples by region: the North (el Cibao), the East, the Capital and the South.


    Note- there is a typo in the beginning of the video. The example for the pronunciation of negocio should be este negocio.

    Another typo is respecte, instead of respete.

    Yes, I see that.


    Do you think this could be a flaw typical of a foreign language resource? Mind you the research, info, and examples are great and represent the topic at hand but I find it hard to believe that they did not catch their own mistake esta negocio. Respete and Respecte could be the spell checker. It changes the word and sometimes you don’t realize it.



    I like how they defined the linguistic zones and the examples are on point. The general phonetic observation can apply across the Caribbean for sure. The DR definitely has a distinct intonation that makes the accent easy to recognize.

    I agree about the linguistic zones and I encounter examples of each living in the
    Colonial Zone and interacting with people in the street. I've noticed the improper use of respeto and respecto in print often so it could be spell-check or writer not aware of the difference.

    Here is one more. I like this compilation too. It is a short list but it gives some common words and expressions typical of the DR.


    I like the summary on the speech patterns el cibaeño and regional variations.





    Note- Cocotaso is incorrect. The correct spelling is CocotAZO. Unfortunately, this is a common error all over the web. People don't know the correct spelling of suffixes. In this case it is the augmentative -AZO.

    It could be nothing more than sloppiness. Such is not limited to the DR by any means. You should see some of the text messages that I receive from folk here.
