Description

This is an introduction and guide to the study of errors in language, which presents a critical survey of previous work. It seeks to clarify such questions as: does correctness matter?; and is it more important to speak fluently and write imaginatively or to communicate one's message? Other questions addressed include whether "good" English for the native speaker is also good for the foreign learner. The reader is led from definitions of error and related concepts, to categorization of types of linguistic deviance discussion of error gravities, the utility of teacher correction and towards writing learner profiles.
