This paper investigates the pronunciation of a non-native speaker of English. The subject was a native-speaker of Arabic. Eleven vowels produced by the subject were recorded and analyzed using the phonetic software, Praat, and were subsequently compared to pronunciation of general American English speakers. Differences in pronunciation are discussed and an intelligibility assessment is provided. In addition, the pedagogical implications of these pronunciation differences are discussed.
