Title To What Extent Does Incorrect Pronunciation Alter Meaning
Creator SEBANE, Zoubida
Description ABSTRACT: This article targets a feature of the language which is essential in foreign language acquisition. All the skills are important to acquire when we are learning a foreign or a second language. However, only the oral skill can immediately assess your mastery of the language and more specifically the pronouncing ability. Good and accurate pronunciation facilitates communication and allows interaction and feedback. It avoids ambiguities and misunderstanding with the listener.   As his pronunciation is correct, the speaker is given interest and consideration, he feels comfortable and can challenge all issues. The situation is completely different when the speaker ‘s oral production is approximate or somehow weak. It delays comprehension and the conversation is not pleasant. There is much effort from parts, the speaker and the hearer. Good speaking abilities open many opportunities social and professional opportunities to the speaker. Pronunciation appears in every language skill acquisition. Listening and speaking, which is obvious, also in reading as the reader should know the pronunciation of the word and finally in writing because the learner is already familiar with the spelling form of the words.
