How To Analyze Interlanguage Errors.
Mizuno, Harumitsu
Journal of Psychology & Education, n9 p113-22 Mar 1991
This paper presents an approach to analyzing the process of second language acquisition, entitled Interlanguage Analysis (IA). IA regards the transitional linguistic system from the learner's first language (L1) to the target language (L2 to TL) as interlanguage (IL). IA seeks to obtain pedagogical implications by clarifying: (1) the types of errors in the use of certain items in the target language; (2) the process through which the errors occur; and (3) the various constraints that intervene in the whole process of interlanguage. The goals of IA include the establishment of a well-knit theory of foreign language acquisition, the elucidation of teaching and learning methods and materials, and the establishment of a data-bank of universal grammar. Contains 19 references. (MDM)
