Abstract

This research paper is entitled The Mastery of dental fricative sounds [ð] [θ] of the third year students of SMP N 2 Karangawen. In this research, the writer attempted to find out the mastery of [ð] [θ] pronunciation of SMP Negeri 2 Karangawen students and to find out the way the students pronounce the dental fricative [ð] [θ] sounds. The writer gave pronunciation test for the students of SMP N 2 Karangawen to read 20 words containing [ð] and 20 words containing [θ]. Then, the analysis is done by comparing the native speaker‟s pronunciation and the students‟ pronunciation, transcribed the recorded students‟ speech sounds in phonetic transcription and found out the errors of the speech sounds made by the students. In order to analyze the data, the writer uses descriptive qualitative method. The subjects of the study are 20 students. Three students (20%) pronounced the English terminologies poorly. Six students (40%) pronounced the English terminologies very poorly. Three students (20%) pronounced the English terminologies fairly, and three students (20%) pronounced the English terminologies well. It shows that the students have difficulties in pronouncing the English sounds [ð] [θ]. Most students‟ mastery (40%) to pronounce the dental sounds [ð] [θ] is very poor. Based on the findings, it is suggested that the teacher teach the way to produce the dental sounds [ð] [θ] and drill the words containing [ð] [θ] to the students who should practice pronouncing the words containing [ð] [θ] regularly.
