Abstract:

Lexical errors are a determinant in gaining insight into vocabulary acquisition,vocabulary use and writing quality assessment. Lexical errors are very frequentin the written production of young EFL learners, but they decrease as learnersgain proficiency. Misspellings are the most common category, but formal errorsgive way to semantic-based lexical errors as proficiency increases, likewise, thedirect influence of the L1 also reduces in favour of more elaborated transfermechanisms and L2 influence. The different categories of lexical errors indicatethe stage of learning. This book uses a study of young EFL learners to suggestthat lexical accuracy is a crucial component of writing assessment, and thatlexical errors are useful in predicting writing quality.
