Grounded Interlanbuage in Applied Linguistics Research. Errors have been classified by J. The question was thoroughly chosen as it will either approve or intrlanguage the approach of Error Analysis in our community, Morocco, however, Error Analysis claims that the causes of the Errors commitment do not only lie in the target language, we tended to ask the participants indirectly about what was the causes of their committing errors, whether it was the L1, L2 or Both and the results were as follow:.

Language-learning aptitude Critical period hypothesis Motivation Willingness to communicate Foreign language anxiety Metalinguistic awareness. Error analysis showed that contrastive analysis was unable to predict a great majority of errors, although its more valuable aspects have been incorporated corrder the study of language transfer.

This question has to do with the second part of the correction situation which is the correction manner, we tended to know how the participants would like to analysix corrected and how they interlanguag like to fix the errors.

Errors are classified [2] according to:. They can be classified by how apparent they are: You could not be signed in.

Mahmoud provided examples based on a research conducted on written English of Arabic-speaking second year University students:. Relating knowledge with competence was significant enough to represent that the competence of the speaker is judged by means of errors that concern the amount of linguistic data he or she has been exposed to, however, performance which is the actual use of language does not represent the language knowledge that the speaker has.

Interlingual error is caused cotder the interference of the native language L1 also known as interference, linguistic interference, and crosslinguistic influencewhereby the learner tends to use their linguistic knowledge of L1 on some Linguistic features in the target language, however, it often leads to making errors.

Error analysis (linguistics)

Error analysts distinguish between errors, which are systematic, and mistakes, which are not. Thus, it is quite obvious that there are some kind of interrelationship between competence and performance; somehow, a speaker can perform well if he or she has had already a satisfied linguistics knowledge.

According to Corder errors are significant of three things, first to the teacher, in that they tell him, if he or she undertakes a systematic analysis, how far towards that goal the learner has progressed and, consequently, what remains for him to learn. According to linguist Corder, the following are the steps in any typical EA research: The results indicate that 54 participants have encountered difficulties at the level speaking, and 44 found writing skill difficult to develop, and the difficulties at the level of listening were encountered by 33 of the participants, and lastly, 13 goes to the reading skill.


And the results were as follow:. They often seek to develop a typology of errors. Closely related to this is the classification according to domainthe breadth of context which the analyst must examine, and extentthe breadth of the utterance which must be changed in order to fix the error. However, this question has to do with the error correction time preferred by the learners themselves, whether immediate or delayed ones.

For these reasons, although error analysis is still used to investigate specific questions in SLA, the quest for an overarching theory of learner errors has largely been abandoned.

The results, somehow, go hand in hand with the approach of error analysis, they indicate that the errors analysis approach is actually applicable to the Moroccan Community, thus, while trying to reduce and get rid of the problems predicted through the systematic comparison between L1 and L2, the applied Linguists should also focus on the complexity and the false application of the linguistic elements within and between the target language as well.

Today, the study of errors is particularly relevant for focus on form teaching methodology. However, the fact that Moroccans, through our survey, seemed to prefer immediate corrections which may be thought of as indication of several interpretations.
