PENERAPAN FONETIK ARTIKULATORIS DALAM PEMBELAJARAN BIPA DI PRANCIS
This article described the learning of Indonesian Language for Foreign Speakers (BIPA) which is held at Université de La Rochelle, France. It focused on phonetic aspects, including pronunciation and articulation in Indonesian language. The differences in the phonetic system between French as a mother tongue and Indonesian as a target language posed obstacles for French speakers. Contrastive analysis between the two languages was applied as initial study, followed by identifying Indonesian phonemes which did not exist in French sound system. Mispronunciation which was conducted by French learners of Indonesian were categorized as nasal velar /ŋ/, trill alveolar /r/, and fricative glotal /h/. Phonetic correction was carried out to improve the pronunciation by drawing the learners’ awareness on the place and manner of articulation. The findings of this study can be beneficial for the development of BIPA learning, specifically related to pronunciation, both in Indonesia and abroad.
