Pronunciation error

From Teflpedia
(Redirected from Mispronounce)

A mispronunciation or pronunciation error is an error involving pronunciation. These are often made by language learners.

An example is a Chinese speaking learner of English who pronounces "usually" as */'jʊərəli:/ which sounds like *"urually" instead of /'ju:ʒəli:/. Or a French-speaking learner of English who pronounces (en) "idea" as /aɪdi:/ rather than /aɪ'dɪə/ because that pronunciation is closer to the French idée /i.de/.

Pronunciation errors may be subject to error correction.
