Computer-Assisted Error Analysis and Courseware Design: Applications for ESL in the Swedish Context

Gerard M. Dalgish
Issued Date: 7 Aug 2014


The paper describes the use of a database in an analysis of writing errors of Swedish university students, discussing and analyzing the major grammatical and vocabulary errors discovered. The paper compares this study with similar work: one, a study of Swedish-speaking teacher trainees' written work; the other, a study of the writing errors of students from a variety of first-language backgrounds. Applications of the results of the error analysis for computer-assisted language learning (CALL) and directions for further research are suggested.
