Analysis for Paragraph 1Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â
Student is unable to linguistically distinguish the consonants â€œFâ€ and â€œP.â€Â This is a common problem. Â Examples of â€œFâ€ and â€œPâ€ conflation can be found in the beginning consonant â€œfâ€ for â€œfarmerâ€ and food. Also, this student is also unable to pronounce â€œLâ€ without sometimes confusing it for â€œR.â€Â This also is a Â mistake Â particularly common for English second language speakers of Asian origin, as their native languages do not have a pronunciation equivalent of â€œR.â€
Student demonstrates proficiency in pronouncing the rest of the paragraph correctly.Â However, the student can improve its pronunciation by learning the stress-timed nature of English.Â Evidently, the student is intent on pronouncing each and every word carefully.Â This affects her cadence and creates a stilted manner in which she reads.Â By learning the stress-timed nature of English pronunciation, the student can achieve a more natural reading voice.
