Voice and pronunciation

Correct pronunciation is important if one is to be understood correctly. Incorrect pronunciation is perhaps the first cause of communication breakdown.
If the listener is not accustomed to the speaker's native language, he/she will not understand a mispronounced word. Mispronunciation also tires the listener's ear and he/she will perhaps even stop trying to understand the speaker if it becomes too difficult.
