Zeinab Ismail – Research Topic

In my research paper I would like to explore the differences in pronunciation, depending on what dialect or language is considered your 1st language. For example, I am someone who speaks Arabic fluently, but my friends struggle with many of the letters in the Arabic alphabet – I am curious as why it is possible for me (although i learned Arabic after learning english) , but isn’t possible for say someone whom is not with Arabic background.

  1. This is a good research topic within linguistics, particularly in the subdiscipline of second language acquisition, but I don’t know how relevant it is to the history of English. Is there a way that you can reformulate it so that your research would involve the development of English? Maybe you can look at how Arabic loanwords have been adapted by English speakers?
