Acoustic phonetic performance level using onomatopoeias with elementary school children: a case study
Benemérita Universidad Autónoma de Puebla
"According to our maternal acoustic-phonetic knowledge, a native speaker pronounces a phoneme in English has comprehension problems since there is no such coincidence. It is necessary to develop the pronunciation of phonemes in English in Spanish-speaking children because when they pronounce a phoneme many times in Spanish, they distort the pronunciation of the word, making it listen in another way, in other words, different from the usual one, consequently when they say it. Suppose they hear to correctly again in another social context. In that case, it will be difficult for them to recognize the sound because children have a different pronunciation from the original one besides that it is created by themselves. So, this research performs the acoustic-phonetic level in fourth-grade elementary school children to help them understand the vocabulary they pronounce in the story “I love to sneeze” by Ellen Schecter and recognize them when they hear them".
