Otundo, Billian K.:
Attitudes toward Kenyan English : Ethnically-Marked Pronunciation.
Bayreuth , 2017 . - V, 73 P.


This book exposes some attitudes toward Kenyan English pronunciation. Pronunciation in second language varieties are influenced by first language patterns, which are also termed ethnically-marked varieties in Kenya. From the more than forty-two ethnic groups (regionally demarcated) in the Republic, more than half including the larger groups participated in the exercise. The research instruments utilised were a guided interview and the verbal guise technique alongside a questionnaire. The data was later corded and plotted in MS-Excel and R for statistical procedures. Intriguing results found within this study have profound implications for the teaching of pronunciation to speakers of non-native varieties of English; acknowledging that phonological cognition enables listeners to cope with variability in speech.
