Pronunciation is the way someone produces sounds that used for making a meaning which involve the segmental aspect ( the particular sounds of language) through the stage of individual sound and suprasegmental aspects such as stress, timing, phrasing and rhythm (Yates, 2002). This research aims to analyze students' pronunciation errors in speaking of eight grade students at SMP N 18 Malang. This research uses the descriptive qualitative design because the researcher wants to describe and analyze the types of students' pronunciation error and the factors which influence the students' pronunciation error in speaking.
