Abstract

Pronunciation is the most important aspect in communication. Error English pronunciations lead misunderstanding in communication. Thus, the researcher did the analysis to know the pronunciation errors of English monophthongs. The research’s aims are: (1) to know the kinds of mispronounced monophthongs in English for the 2nd semester students of B class at Politeknik Negeri Madiun, English study program, in the academic year of 2019/2020, and (2) to know the causes of the mispronounced monophthongs in English for the 2nd semester students of B class at Politeknik Negeri Madiun, English Study Program, in the academic year of 2019/2020. The researcher used mixed method research. The qualitative and quantitative data were used in this research. The quantitative data were based on the errors of the students on the test and the qualitative data were based on the observations and interviews during the research. This research resulted that the most commonly error monophthongs are /i/=36,4%, /ʌ/=17,9%, /e/=13,6%, /æ/=12,1% /ʊ/=11,4%, and /ə/=8,6%. The errors happened in the three classification such as substitution = 72,1%, insertion = 16,4%, and omission = 11,5%. The errors were caused by the inter-lingual and intra-lingual transfer determined by the students understanding in pronunciation, and influenced by the students first language and mother tongue.
