Abstract

Discourse is the highest level which has a very complex level of complexity so that it is prone to errors, especially related to learning the skill of writing discourse text. This happened to Indonesian students who were studying Mandarin at CCNU. Based on the results of identification and analysis, the forms of errors that occur at the level of written discourse vary greatly. This study describes the language errors and solutions. The analysis results show that the form of language errors in Chinese narrative texts include linguistic errors and typographical errors. Linguistic errors include (a) diction errors, (b) morphological errors in the form of morphophonemic and the use of affixes; and (c) syntax errors in the form of using phrase, conjunction, excessive elements, question words, and ineffective sentences. Meanwhile, the use of this type of letter is related to the type and characters of Chinese called hanzi which functions as a symbol of meaning. Errors of this type of letter occur in words that have the same sound and sound-symbol (pinyin) but the meaning is different. As a result, the misuse of these typeface causes errors of meaning at the morpheme level, the irrelevant meanings at the syntactic level, and the entire Chinese narrative discourse becomes inaccurate and incoherent.
