As non-native speakers of English, we often face some problems with English Language. However, I will not focus on all the problems. As a baby, we are able to learn speaking any language without any accents but when we use one particular language more and more ,our entire speech system, from lips and palate to vocal cords, becomes accustomed to the sounds needed to use the language and it becomes more difficult to produce "foreign" sounds.
We always had difficulties with the pronunciations. We use our mother tongue more in our daily communication and some families use both, English accents and their mother tongue. We may also create innovative pronunciation that can’t be found in the Standard English. Nowadays, there are varieties of English accents in this world such as Maglish and Singlish in Asia, Australian English and New Zealand English in Southern Hemisphere.. There are 26 letters in the English Language, 5 vowels and 21 consonants. The spoken English or phonemes has 44 phonic sounds , 20 spoken vowels and 24 spoken consonants. This is the part what we are focusing right now. Non-native speakers of English tend to carry over the intonation and phonemic inventory from their mother tongue into their English speech .Example
Singlish : 1. No good lah. – This isn't good
2. He play soccer also very good one leh. – He's very good at playing soccer too.
