Yarmohammadi, Lotfollah
International Review of Applied Linguistics in Language Teaching, v18 n1 p1-20 Feb 1980

From this, errors attributable to transference and those due to inconsistencies in English are enumerated. A unified analytic model of Persian errors in learning English suggests useful teaching strategies. (PMJ)
