我发音得不太准.

  • Does it translate as "My pronunciation is the best/exact?"

What is the meaning of 准? Does it depends on the context?

    准 means accurate / standard. 不太准 means not so standard and your translation means right the opposite... – user58955 Oct 22 '14 at 19:46
  • if you add 地干活 to the end of your sentence,我地发音得不太准的干活。voila,, it would be a Japanese-Chinese sentence,so called 洋泾浜话。Anyway,you should avoid that serious mistake. – wolfrevo Apr 14 '15 at 12:36

has a lot of meanings according to the context. Usually it means accurate(准确) but in this case it's 标准, which means standard.

BTW, I think you may want to say 我发音发得不太准 / 我的发音不太准 rather than 我发音得不太准.

Fyi, another way to translate the English is "我音发得不太准", where you swap the verb and the object so that the verb can be modified by the adverbial phrase that attaches to the end.

Why don't you just say "I have accent"?
