Title: An Analysis of Negative and Interrogative Formation Errors in English Language: A Case Study of Damazeen Technological College Students
Author: Abdallah, Jamal Jafar Ahmed
Abstract: This research is a case study which aims at investigating negative and interrogative formation problems that face DTC students when they want to form negative and interrogative sentences. The hypothesis states that neither negative nor interrogative is part of the population’s competence. The research is built on sources which are books and references connected with the subject and they are primary and secondary sources.In methodology, the sample comprises a random sample of hundred students. The instrument for data collection is a two-part test. One part of the test is about negative formation and the other part is about interrogative formation. The data are processed by Microsoft Word 2007 and Microsoft Excel 2007.Based on the results of the test, the research came up with many results. It is found that, according to the obtained results, the hypothesis is proved to be true in that neither negative formation nor interrogative formation is part of the population competence as such. It is also found that the informants appear to be slightly better at forming negative sentences than at forming interrogative ones. Three of the findings show that the informants tend to have problems with word order, spelling, and punctuation.The study recommends, among other recommendations, more consolidation practice on the part of the students, more effective teaching on the part of teachers, and more attention on the part of materials or syllabus design.
