Abstract

Phonetic is the basic carrier of language, and monophthongs are the main component of vowel system and the basis of diphthong pronunciation, which play a crucial role as the most basic unit in the sound of all languages. English learners’ perception and production of second-language (L2) vowels is affected by their mother tongue (L1). By searching the relevant research literature in recent years, it is found that research on monophthongs has focused on phonological analysis of acoustic features, comparative analysis of dialects, and phonological application analysis. Nevertheless, the experimental research methods for English monophthongs have gradually diversified and the forms and contents have been deepened. More studies of the impact or influence of mother tongue on learners’ acquisition of English monophthongs are in need in order to generate a better understanding of the role mother tongue plays in English learners’ acquisition of English monophthongs.
