Abstract

Siti Masfufah: The /v/ Production of the English Education Department Students of Syekh Nurjati State Institute for Islamic Studies English is one of international languages. It is used in any kinds of business. Speaking English is different from Indonesian. English has several phonemes that do not exist in Indonesian. One of them is /v/. /v/ is a phoneme that is investigated in this study. In English, the letter v is pronounced /v/. Yet, in Indonesian, the letter v is pronounced /f/ or /p/ by most Indonesian speakers. Thus, the reason of investigating this study is because of the existence of letter v and the inexistence of /v/ in Indonesian. In conducting this study, the writer had twelve participants who are the English Education Department Students of Syekh Nurjati State Institute for Islamic Studies and got the highest grade of English phonology course. The writer interviewed the participants and observed their /v/ production by reading a paragraph that contains fifty-one /v/ phonemes. The result of the study shows that the participants have problems with producing /v/. The participants substitute /v/ with /f/. Their quality of producing the phoneme is fair, neither good nor bad. It is proven by their percentage of /v/ production that shows 55% correct /v/ production. The factors that influence their quality of producing the phoneme are the familiarity of the phoneme and the strength of desire to produce the phoneme correctly. A note of this study is the finding of /v/ in word of that is the hardest word to pronounce correctly. Based on the results of this study, the writer has some suggestions for students, English teachers and lecturers, and future researchers. It is suggested for students to learn and improve their pronunciation skill to speak clearly. Nothing is difficult to learn if they have strong desire. It is necessary for English teachers and lecturers to teach the correct phonemes to their students. For future researchers, the writer suggests conducting the study of other phonemes that do not exist in Indonesian and Arabic and investigating the word of.
