An Analysis of Spanish and German Learners' Errors. Working Papers on Bilingualism, No. 7.
LoCoco, Veronica Gonzalez-Mena
This study analyzes Spanish and German errors committed by adult native speakers of English enrolled in elementary and intermediate levels. Four written samples were collected for each target language, over a period of five months. Errors were categorized according to their possible source. Types of errors were ordered according to their frequency. The hierarchies of relative difficulty thus obtained varied for the target languages. The production of some errors seemed to be based on proposed universals of language acquisition; other errors appeared to be directly related to the languages involved. (Author)
