Abstract

Learning English pronunciation for students of Javanese native speakers is not easy, since there are some different sounds which exist in English but not in Javanese, such as interdental sounds, or exist in both language but seldom to use in Javanese, such as labiodental sounds. This difference make students change the sounds into the closest sounds of their native language. This research aimed at finding the students’ pronunciation of English dental sounds and the causes of students’ lack of pronunciation. The method used in this research is qualitative research. The subjects of this research are the 8E students of SMPN 1 Gatak in academic year 2016/2017.The instruments of collecting the data are test, interview and questionnaires. The data are displayed on the tables and described in sentences. To check the technique of analyzing data, researcher uses methodological triangulation and to check the validity, researcher uses Cambridge Advanced Learner’s Dictionary. The findings of this research are the students tend to pronounce voiced and unvoiced labiodental sounds in unvoiced labiodental /f/ and the shifting sounds occurred are /f/ into /ɡ/ and /h/ and sound /v/ into /f/. In interdental sounds, students tend to pronounce both voiced interdental sounds and the unvoiced /ð/ and /θ/ into sound /t/ and /d/. The other sounds shifting is from /θ/ into /ʧ/. The accuracy of their pronunciation of unvoiced labiodental is 72%, voiced labiodental is 3.87%, unvoiced interdental is 1.93% and voiced interdental is 22.4%. The causes of students lack of pronunciation is the students’ native language, the amount of exposure, the phonetic ability and the motivation and concern for good pronunciation.
