Exploring Nuances in Second Language Acquisition: An Error Analysis Perspective
This study employs error analysis as a pivotal lens to scrutinize the intricacies of second language learning, emphasizing the unique accents manifested through learners’ mistakes. Departing from the confines of contrastive analysis, the research aims to illuminate the processes of acquiring a second language. Key facets of language acquisition, including transfer, interference, and the fossilization process, are investigated to provide insights into the development of learners’ interlanguage. The study conducts a comparative analysis of early and late language learning, emphasizing the impact of cognitive, psychological, and social factors on the learning trajectory. Motivational influences, encompassing instrumental and integrative motives, are explored in connection to their effects on learning outcomes. This research not only contributes to a deeper understanding of error patterns in second language acquisition but also advocates for methodologies that surpass the constraints of contrastive analysis, offering potential avenues for more effective language learning strategies.
