Abstract

The occurrence of errors in the foreign language learning process is something that is common in the foreign language learning process. This is because the logic of the learner’s language still has a dependency on the logic of the mother tongue as a form of the process of mother tongue interference. An event like this also happened to beginner-level Mandarin learners at the Chinese Language Education Study Program, State University of Surabaya. Language errors in students occur more often at the level of syntax where, at this level of syntax, the logic of language has indeed become more complex. So, the purpose of writing this article is to analyze and describe forms of linguistic errors at the syntactic level in discourse texts written by students. So, the purpose of writing this article is to analyze and describe forms of linguistic errors at the syntactic level in discourse texts written by students. This was obtained from 40 free students’ texts which were the object of research. The error data is entered into a data classification table and then analyzed and described. The analysis technique used is using the Corder error analysis model. Based on the identification of the types of errors that occur in the free essay text is written by the student can be classified as a form of error at the syntactic level, (1) syntactic errors in the form of phrases, namely, improper wording, excessive use of elements or redundant, loss of elements, use of excessive superlative forms, double denomination, and diction errors, (2) syntax use errors in the form of clauses, namely improper wording, excessive use of elements, word removal, and (3) syntax use errors in the form of sentences, namely sentences that is not predicated, sentences that are not subjected to and are not predicated (stubby sentences), illogical sentences, non-parallel sequences, elimination of conjunctions, excessive use of conjunctions, removal of particles, excessive addition of words.
