Concept of Error and Definition of Error

Concept of Error and Definition of Error

Cause errors can be regarded as a device the learner uses in order to learn. The making of errors is a strategy employed both by children acquiring their mother tongue and by those learning a second language. Errors can be accepted as a kind of learning activity taking place in the learner.

Rach, Ufer & Heinze. (2013: 22) The  concept  of  error  can  be  defined  as  a  process  or  fact  that  does  not  match  a given  norm.  As  expressed  by  the  proverbs  quoted above, it seems to be a consensus in educational science that learning from errors is principally possible. One explanation for this assumption follows from the theory of negative knowledge because an understanding of errors is considered to be necessary for distinguishing between correct processes or facts and the incorrect surroundings.

error is like-wise distinctive or a typical  definition  includes  the reference  to  the  linguistic  form  which deviates from the correct one, An error is a deviant form which results from lack of knowledge of a particular form and reflects a learner’s current stage in the interlanguage development (Tomczyk 2013: 924)

Based on Sattayatham & Ratanapinyowong (2008: 21) identified a language error as an unsuccessful bit of language. Moreover, he pointed out that error is likewise unique to humans, and error analysis is the process of determining the incidence, nature, causes and consequences of unsuccessful language. Errors are significant in three different ways. First to the teacher, errors tell him how far the learner has progressed and, consequently, what remains for him to learn. Second, errors provide researchers with evidence on how language is learnt or acquired, what strategies or procedures the learner are employing in his discovery of the language. Thirdly, errors are indispensable to the learner himself.
