The sixth meeting of the biannual conference Laboratory Approaches to Romance Linguistics (LARP6) was co-organized by Indiana University and El Colegio de México and was held at El Colegio de México, Mexico City, Mexico, on October 3-5, 2012. The papers in this volume are arranged in two main groups. The collection begins with Laura Colantoni’s plenary paper about the contributions and challenges of Laboratory Phonology approaches to the study of sound variation and change, followed by a series of articles that investigates processes in Spanish: nasal palatalization in Buenos Aires Spanish, /s/ and /h/ voicing in the Basque Country and Puerto Rico, respectively and neutralization of /r/ and /x/ in Puerto Rican Spanish. The second set of papers examines bilingual and learner phenomena: perception of foreign accent in the L2 production of /l/ and voiceless stops, perception and production of lexical stress among heritage speakers, acquisition of stress in French and Spanish, intervocalic voiced stops in Amazonian Spanish and, finally, intonation in Spanish-K’ichee’ bilinguals.

Proceedings from Cascadilla Proceedings Project are published in library binding and on the web. We offer free web access to the complete proceedings through our web site, www.lingref.com.
