- My name is Fernanda Barrientos Contreras, following the Spanish naming customs (Barrientos is my dad's last name; Contreras is my mum's). However, people often use their paternal name only for simplicity's sake and use both only in official paperwork. Google Scholar does not understand this and my papers are often cited under my maternal name (e.g. "Contreras, FB"). I also have two middle names which no one needs to know about. The IPA is [feɾnanda βarjentos].
- I was born and raised in Concepción, Chile, which does not look like the city that was shown in the movie The Reaping.
- As any Chilean, I survived a big earthquake.
- If you are a phonologist/phonetician and are interested in Chilean Spanish then feel free to contact me, but you might also want to contact my colleagues Mauricio Figueroa, Karolina Broś, and/or Scott Sadowsky.
