Language code: es-DO
Dominican Spanish, denoted by the language code es-DO, is a unique variant of Spanish primarily spoken in the Dominican Republic. Dominican Spanish is known for its distinctive pronunciation and unique vocabulary, which set it apart from other dialects.
Specific features of this language pronunciation include the tendency to aspirate the 's' sound and the widespread use of syllable-timed rhythm. These phonetic characteristics contribute to its unique rhythm and melody.
Word-final /l/ and /r/ swapping: Known as "lambdacism," this feature is observed in words ending with "l" or "r", where these consonants are swapped or interchanged. An example is the word "doctor", which could be pronounced as "doctol".
Debuccalization of /r/: In some regional accents of Dominican Spanish, the /r/ sound at the end of a syllable is often debuccalized, meaning it is pronounced at the back of the vocal tract. It might be realized as a glottal sound /ʔ/, or it might not be pronounced at all.
