This thesis is an analysis of the students’ ability in perceiving the English fricative consonants. It aims at explaining the student’s speech perceptions. Besides, the factors that influence them in perceiving the fricatives are also observed. The research was done at English Department, Faculty of Humanities, Andalas University. The English Department participants, the year of 2016, were divided into five males and fifteen females. The participants’ perceptual abilities were observed based on the way they pronounced the fricatives. In analyzing the data some theories were used: Lado’s (1957) the Contrastive Analysis Hypothesis, Eackman’s (1977) Markedness theory, Flege’s (1987, 1995, 2003) Similarity/Dissimilarity Speech Learning Model, Corder’s(1967) Error Analysis, and Selinker’s (1972) Inter-language Phonology. Based on the analysis, it was shown that there were two fricative consonants perceived inaccurately, and they have the highest frequency of occurrence, namely palatal and interdental. The palatal [ʒ] is perceived as [s] 48,3% and the interdental [θ] as [t] 40%. The two fricative consonants were not found in the first language. This may cause the participants’ inaccurate perception. Key word: Fricative Consonant, Speech perception, Second learner, Contrastive Analysis, Markedness theory.
