French, Gary
World Englishes, v24 n3 p371-382 Aug 2005
In this study, errors in the English writing of students in the College of World Englishes at Chukyo University, Japan are examined to determine if there is a level of acceptance among teachers. If there is, are these errors becoming part of an accepted, standardized Japanese English Results show there is little acceptance of third person "-s", article and plural errors in student writing, but there is a measured degree of the acceptance of errors with regards to sentence combining and sentence fragments, omission of subject, generalizing or obscuring of subjects, and omission of expected superlatives.
