Title: Errors in Language Learning and Use
Written By: Carl James
URL: http://www.awl-he.com/linguistics
Series Title: Applied Linguistics and Language Study Series
Description:

This book provides a scholarly and well-illustrated theoretical and historical background to the field of Error Analysis. A range of relevant questions is addressed such as whether native speakers make errors, and whether `good English' for the native speaker is also good for the foreign learner. The reader is led from definitions of error and related concepts, to categorization of types of linguistic deviance, discussion of error gravities, the utility of teacher correction and towards writing learner profiles. Throughout, the book is guided by considerable practical experience in language education in a range of classroom contexts worldwide.
