Abstract

This paper briefly discusses the importance of error analysis, types of errors, and the major causes of errors in second or foreign language learning. The major portion of this paper is devoted to the linguistic problems faced by Arab learners of English as a foreign language. The paper then briefly deals with the linguistic interference from Arabic in the learning of English in the areas of spelling and pronunciation, vocabulary, and some selected syntactic features. The paper concludes by offering some pedagogical implications about error analysis.
