Abstract

This paper highlights the phonological modification of teachers' instructional talk in teaching English to secondary school students in South Sulawesi. The descriptive qualitative method was employed involving 10 English teachers teaching at ten different secondary schools. This study implemented direct classroom observation entailing videotape recording. This study found that the teachers modified their instructional talk into some Bahasa Indonesia sounds on either English vowels or consonants, in the beginning, during, and closing phases of teaching. Regarding English vowels, the modification mostly occurred on the front, central, and back vowels. The frequent modified in presenting teaching materials were the alveolar and velar plosive (t, d, k, and g), dental and alveolar fricative /q, Ð, s, and z)/, palato alveolar fricative ( and ), and palato alveolar affricative (t and d ). That modification, in short, bridged the teachers to talk in English as to make the students readily perceive the points of their presentation.
