Abstract
This paper investigates the negative transfer effect of Guangxi dialects on English phonetic acquisition of college students in Guangxi. The study adopts the method of comparative analysis by recording the English pronunciation of college students from Guangxi Baihua, Zhuang, and Guiliu dialects. The English phonetic symbols influenced by Guangxi Baihua, Zhuanghua, and Guiliu dialects are found after comparison and analysis. The results of the study show that Guangxi Baihua, Zhuang and Guiliu dialects have a negative transfer effect on English phonetic acquisition of college students in Guangxi, which affects the accuracy of their pronunciation. Finally, this study proposes measures to overcome the negative transfer effect of dialects based on the analysis.
