Academic Information

Degree in Hispanic Philology, mention in Linguistics, from the Complutense University of Madrid in 1985. PhD in Philology, Hispanic Philology Section, Hispanic Linguistics subsection, in 1988.

Academic positions held

My teaching activity combines basic introductory subjects in Linguistics and Phonetics and Phonology of the Spanish Language in first degree courses with other specialization subjects in applied Linguistics: first and second language learning and clinical linguistics. In addition to regular teaching at UNED, I have been invited to teach at several Spanish universities (UCM, UAM, UB, U. Sevilla, Usal, USC, UGr, etc.) and international universities (U. Torino, U. Salerno, U. Oxford, U. Western Sydney).

Research activity

My research career is developed along three main lines:

1) Spanish phonetics, from an acoustic and especially perceptual point of view, with publications in Speech Communication (Ortega, González and Marrero 2000; Mendoza et al. 2003, Jiménez-Bravo and Marrero-Aguiar, accepted), Revista de Filología Española (Albalá and Marrero, 1995), Estudios de Fonética Experimental (Marrero, 2008), Procesamiento del Lenguaje Natural (Battaner et al, 2005, Cappelli, Marrero and Albalá 2004), book chapters in publishers such as John Benjamins (Escandell, Marrero and Pérez-Ocón, 2013), etc. Presentations in international congresses such as Acoustics08, 15th International Congress of Phonetic Sciences (Barcelona, 2003), invited papers in XXX Aniversario del Laboratorio de Fonética de la UB (Barcelona, 2008), V Congreso Internacional de Fonética Experimental (Cáceres, 2011), Simposio Metodoloxía para o estudo perceptivo da variación prosódica dialectal (Santiago de Compostela, 2013) X convegno annuale dellAssociazione Italiana Scienze della Voce (Turin, 2014), etc.

2) Psycholinguistics, acquisition and development of the mother tongue (collaboration with the Istituto di Linguistica Computazionale, Pisa, and with the chair of Professor Wofgang Dressler, Vienna), and study of language disorders related to hearing deficits and dyslexia (in collaboration with the Ruber International Hospital, among others). Publications: book chapters in publishers such as Mouton de Gruyter (Aguirre and Marrero, 2009), John Benjamins (Marrero, Aguirre and Albalá, 2007), Lincolm Studies in Theoretical Linguistics (Marrero, Albalá and Moreno-Torres, 2002), or Multilingual Matters (volume edited by Martin J. Ball, David Crystal and Paul Fletcher, 2012); invited paper at Morforetem-2021, etc.

3) Applied Linguistics: teaching pronunciation (Marrero 2022 in; Colantoni, Escudero, Marrero-Aguiar and Steele 2021 in Frontiers of Communication), and, especially, Clinical Linguistics: chapters in Arco Libros (Marrero, Rodríguez and Igualada, 2014), Masson-Elsevier (Marrero and Cárdenas, 2013), Revista de Logopedia, Foniatría y Audiología (Mendoza, Carballo and Marrero, 2000), Behavioural Brain Research (Jiménez-Bravo, Marrero and Benítez Burraco, 2017) or Loquens (Elvira-García and Marrero Aguiar 2020); edition of the Proceedings of the I International Congress of Clinical Linguistics, 2009; research contracts with Amplifon or Phonak; invited paper at Psylex 2019, etc.

Professional experience

In the 90's I collaborated with the ENT unit of the Ruber International Hospital as a consultant. The result of this joint work was the publication in the UNED of the "Cuaderno de logoaudiometría", written with M.ª Rosa de Cárdenas. It is currently the standard material for verbal reception threshold and verbal discrimination tests in Spain. In the 2000's I collaborated with the Phonak Children's Plan, in the development of the Verbal Audiometry Tests in Noise (PAVER PIP-UNED). Currently I give specialized training at the Spanish headquarters of the Alexander Graham Bell International Foundation on the effects of hearing loss on the phonic level of Spanish.
