PDF

The purpose of this study is to adapt the Measure of Pronunciation Anxiety in the Foreign Language Classroom developed by Baran-Lucarz (2016) into Turkish language and culture. The sampling of the study consists of two groups, one of whom 113 junior and senior undergraduate students majoring English language for linguistics validation and the other group was 344 undergraduate students from various faculties of the same university for the construct validity. Subsequent to the linguistic validation, confirmatory factor analysis was implemented to test the model fit in Turkish culture. The revised five-factor structure was seen to preserve and the fit indices were found to be satisfactory and valid in Turkish culture too. As for the reliability, the internal consistency values and the split-half reliability test scores of the revised scale were also found adequate.
