Produktbeschreibung
This book exposes some attitudes toward Kenyan English pronunciation. Pronunciation in second language varieties are influenced by first language patterns, which are also termed ethnically-marked varieties in Kenya. From the more than forty two ethnic groups (regionally demarcated) in the Republic, more than half including the larger groups participated in the exercise. The research instruments utilised were a guided interview and the verbal guise technique alongside a questionnaire. The data was later corded and plotted in MS-Excel and R for statistical procedures. Intriguing results found within this study have profound implications for the teaching of pronunciation to speakers of non-native varieties of English; acknowledging that phonological cognition enables listeners to cope with variability in speech.
