While this is probably the closest we have ever come to rigorously defining the notion of “equivalence,” even this formulation is still far from satisfactory, as is apparent from the works discussed below.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. But by early s, CA was already open to attack on both external grounds of empirical validity and internal theoretical foundationsleading Selinker to wonder that CA was still thriving “at a period when a serious crisis of confidence exists as to what it is” Selinkerp. Error Analysis approach inteflanguage and announced the decline of the Contrastive Analysis which was only effective in phonology.

Dingwall proposed that “languages are more likely to be similar in their ‘kernel’ than in their total structure, and that which is obligatory in the most valued grammar is more basic than that which is optional,” but with cordfr demise of the notion of “kernel” sentences, his hypothesis has become somewhat outdated.


Also, it is consistent with the structuralist dictum regarding the primacy of speech. This article is also available for rental through DeepDyve. Oxford University Press is a department of the University of Oxford.

It is only when we have adn these cirder that EA will have a pedagogically useful role to play. The third source that has been considered to support the CA hypothesis see Section 1. The aim of EA according to J. Common Errors in Language Learning. I submit that by treating unsuppressed or unmonitored access to native language patterns as one of the “variables” responsible for the “variability” of TL performance, we can reconcile CA with the variability model.

This is essentially the approach adopted by Stockwell et al.

Language learning strategies Communication strategies Code-switching Good language learner studies. Second of all, Moroccans, maybe, do not feel ashamed of making errors in English, which is actually just the second foreign language in Morocco, and, finally, Moroccans may view that immediate corrections simply more effective than delayed ones.

Like the child struggling to acquire his language, the second-language learner is also trying out successive hypotheses about the nature of the TL, and interlznguage this viewpoint, the learner’s “errors” or hypotheses are “not only inevitable but are a necessary” part interlanghage the language learning process. The difference is that, in IL, the contrastive analysis is an initial filtering device, making way for the testing of hypotheses about the other determinants of the learner’s language.

For him, the test of translation equivalence is the interchangeability of the items in a given situationp. This technique, therefore, demonstrates the possibility of interlanguagge functional equivalence across structures in empirical terms.


Focus on form Input enhancement.

Levenstonon the other hand, points out the possibility of multiple translation equivalents d. In particular, with respect to each field of study, we shall examine the current trends in theory, methodology, claims and empirical validations thereof and its contribution to TL teaching.

Richards a, bextrapolating from the results of EA in various second language learning situations, shows that many of the “deviant” forms produced by learners can be accounted for in terms of one or more of the processes posited by Selinker. There is nothing in the CA hypothesis that denies the learner’s language systematicity: Every experienced foreign language teacher knows that a substantial number of persistent mistakes made by his students can be traced to the “pull of the mother tongue.

In the words of Ferguson”. He also recognizes cases of positive transfer. On the contrary, as Zyatiss remarks, a pedagogically oriented description of the learner’s language is “always contrastive and eventually evaluative” p.

In order to account for the systematicity of deviant forms or their “fossilization” at a given stageNemser posits the play of two forces: Receive exclusive offers and updates from Oxford Academic.

Yet one may wish to at least speculate on the possible pedagogical implications of the recent studies, if only to generate controversy. One of the notable exceptions is Oksaar University of Illinois,
