This paper provides an account of unstressed vowel reduction (UVR) in Cochabambino Spanish. Phonetic and social variables (gender, age) are analyzed to determine the internal and external factors regulating UVR variability among middleclass Cochabambino Spanish speakers. Results are further analyzed in light of the theoretical frameworks provided by Articulatory Phonology (Browman/Goldstein 1989) and H&H Theory (Lindblom 1990).
