El contexto es lingüístico, hablando de la español de un región; no entiendo este frase:

Además de pronunciar con mayor fuerza que en la costa el sonido de la “s” originalmente apical sin aspirar y de las consonantes en general, en detrimento de las vocales.

Besides prouducing with more force than in the coast, the "s" sound, originally apical and without asperation, common to the consonants in general, is detrimental to the vowels... ???

I have no idea what this is supposed to mean.

    Yeah, "detriment" is usually used in phrases like "smoking is detrimental to your health", it makes me think of mental conditions or maybe legal terms. I can't think of any expressions where I would say "to the detriment of".
