Apr 08, Bayu Novianto rated it it was amazing. The volumes of The Contrastive Structure Series e. Kachru has shown the limitation of a purely structural notion of equivalence and the relevance of pragmatics and “conversational implicature” for defining “equivalence.

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. Errors have been classified by J. Critics of CA have argued that since native language interference is only one of the sources of error, indulging in CA with a view to predicting difficulties is not worth the time spent on it; moreover, they argue, many of the difficulties predicted by CA do not show up in the actual learner performance at all; on the other hand, many errors that do turn up are not predicted by CA.

The results were as follow:. Hence, the object of EA is to describe the whole of the learner’s linguistic system and to compare it with that of the TL. There have been two schools of thought when it comes to errors analysis and philosophy, the first one, according to Corder linked the errors commitment with the teaching method arguing that if the teaching method was adequate, the errors would not be committed, the second school believed that we live in an imperfect world and that errors correction is something real and the applied linguist cannot do without it no matter what teaching approach they may use.


Dickerson says that CA, by denying the “variability” i. Finally, the adaptation of mathematical models for the description of natural language phenomena has enabled descriptions to be rigorous and explicit. Thus the theoretical aspect of EA is as worthy of study in and of itself as is that of child language acquisition and can, in turn, provide insights into the process of language acquisition in general.

Error Analysis and Interlanguage

Error analysis in SLA was established in the s by Corder and colleagues. Three aspects of the TG model have profoundly influenced CA: Certainly variability must be accounted for in synchronic description as well as contrastive analysis.

The critics of CA have not conclusively proved this is not so. Lists with This Book. This technique, therefore, demonstrates the possibility of establishing functional equivalence across structures in empirical terms.

After all, variability still remains a challenge to descriptive linguistics as well, and CA can only be as good as the description on which it is based. It is only when we have clarified these issues that EA will have a pedagogically useful role to play.

So is “overgeneralization” e. Is it possible to formalize the relationship that should hold between constructions that are considered translation equivalents by a “competent bilingual”?

These results can only show that students trust more their teacher than both of their classmates and themselves, and since that Self-correction is considered to be the most effective one as we have mentioned in our theoretical part. This was essentially the approach advocated as early as by Jakobson. Most users should sign in with their email address.

Linguists have always been attempting to describe the types of errors committed by the language learners, and that is exactly the best way to start with, as it helps out the applied linguist to identify where the problem lies.

The term Interlanguage IL seems to be appropriate also for the following reasons: In other words, the approach toward the learner’s performance has become more broadbased in trying to come up with an explanatory account of why the TL learner speaks and writes the way he does. The difference is that, analyss IL, the contrastive analysis is an initial filtering interlanugage, making way for the testing of hypotheses about the other determinants of the learner’s language.

Center for Applied Linguistics, Log In Sign Up. The goals of EA Given this redefinition of the notion of error, it follows that the goals of EA as conceived previously also need to be interlajguage. I will now briefly consider the state of the art in practical contrastive analysis. This latent psychological structure contains five central processes language transfer, transfer of training, strategies of second-language learning, strategies of second-language communication and overgeneralization of TL linguistic material and a few minor ones e.

In Nickel a pp. Contrastive Linguistics and Its Pedagogical Implications. They can be classified by how apparent they are: Also, error analysis can deal effectively only with learner production speaking and writing and not with learner reception listening and reading.

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. Learner’s performance may also be right “by chance,” i. To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up. Brown have recognized the absurdity of describing the child as possessing all the rules of the adult language inherlanguage with a suspiciously large number of deletion rules.

Dickerson’s use of the Labovian variability model to the study of TL acquisition is significant for at least two reasons: Xue-mei pointed out that Contrastive analysis hypothesis claimed that the principal barrier to second language acquisition is the interference of the first language system with the second language system and that a scientific, structural comparison of the two languages in question would enable people to predict and describe which are pir and which are not.

Refresh and try again. The experimental evidence, the little that there is, however, does not support such an extreme position. CA cannot merely be a subcomponent of EA because, for one thing, what we need is not only a taxonomic classification of a corpus of data but a corpus-free theory of errors and, for another, “predictive” CA brings to light areas of difficulty not even noticed by EA d.
