Jyoti,
You are asking-What happens when I mispronounce some words or even sentences?
Please do not be overtly concerned about this...It is only natural that you initially find it difficult...As you keep at it,it would get better and better...Listen to the chant(in the ashram website) a number of times and chant along with that.
Namaskar

Dear Jyoti ji,
      :) what happens when my daughter calls me but mispronounces my name ?

Sri Ramakrishna says :

"It is enough to have yearning for God.  It is enough to love Him and feel attracted to Him: Don't you know that God is the Inner Guide? He sees the longing of our heart and the yearning of our soul.  Suppose a man has several sons.  The older boys address him distinctly as 'Baba' or 'Papa', but the babies can at best call him 'Ba' or 'Pa'.  Now, will the father be angry with those who address him in this indistinct way? The father knows that they too are calling him, only they cannot pronounce his name well.  All children are the same to the father.  Likewise, the devotees call on God alone, though by different names.  They call on one Person only.  God is one, but His names are many."

Love!
