- Japanese passive form, morphological error, verb conjugation
Verbs are a class of words that can stand alone and conjugate. The Japanese verb has various forms of conjugation, and it differs based on the group of the verb. One form of verb conjugation in Japanese is verb change to the passive form. In conjugating verb to passive form, the Japanese learners of UNP frequently make mistakes. Based on linguistic categories, incorrect verb conjugation is categorized as morphological error. Morphological error is a grammatical mistake on a morpheme or word level. According to Dulay (1982), Language errors consist of omission, addition, misformation, and disordering. The purpose of this study is to describe the morphological errors of verb conjugation to the passive form made by Japanese language learners by using surface strategy taxonomy. This research was a qualitative study with a descriptive method. The source of the research data was the answer sheet of the Japanese grammar test of the third-year students of the Japanese education study program of UNP. The research samples were third-year students batch 2017 as many as 30 people from a population of 60 people, who were selected by simple random sampling techniques. The result of this study is the most commonly found mistake in conjugating the verb into passive form is the misformation of the verb.
