PROBLEMS OF AMERICANS IN MASTERING THE PRONUNCIATION OF EGYPTIAN ARABIC.
KENNEDY, NANCY M.
THE DIFFICULTIES ENCOUNTERED BY SPEAKERS OF AMERICAN ENGLISH IN ATTEMPTING TO MASTER THE PRONUNCIATION OF EGYPTIAN ARABIC WERE ANALYZED DURING THE REPORTED RESEARCH. THE LANGUAGE UNDER CONSIDERATION WAS THE URBAN COLLOQUIAL ARABIC OF THE EGYPTIAN DELTA. THIS STUDY DEALT WITH THE SEGMENTAL PHONEMES ONLY, WITH SOME REFERENCE TO STRESS AND OCCASIONALLY TO INTONATION. AN INTENSIVE COURSE IN EGYPTIAN ARABIC WAS TAUGHT AT THE GEORGETOWN UNIVERSITY INSTITUTE OF LANGUAGES AND LINGUISTICS DURING 1957-58. ONE GROUP OF NINE STUDENTS WAS OBSERVED FROM THE 2D MONTH OF THEIR COURSE UNTIL THE 8TH MONTH, AND ANOTHER GROUP OF EIGHT STUDENTS FROM THE BEGINNING OF THEIR COURSE UNTIL THE END OF THE 2D MONTH. THIS REPORT DESCRIBES THE ERRORS OF THE STUDENTS IN AUDITORY AND ARTICULATORY TERMS AND ATTEMPTS TO ACCOUNT FOR THESE MISHEARINGS AND MISPRONUNCIATIONS BY RELATING THEM TO DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE PHONEMIC PATTERNS OF EGYPTIAN ARABIC AND AMERICAN ENGLISH.
