Abstract

Morphology is a part of linguistics’ branches. The study itself is about how to form or create a word. The word can be the smallest unit of language which is known as morpheme that is combined with another word to produce more different word, whether the word changes the class and meaning or not at all, which many students still do not understand, hence, the researcher took interest to studied and analysed morphological errors made by students. Since most of students still find difficulty in arranging words, therefore, the researcher chose to did an analysis of morphological errors, which the error is based on Linguistics Category Taxonomy that was found on first year students’ final examination papers in intensive writing class which is started on early semester. Intensive writing class is a type of writing performance that focuses more on students’ word formation and their grammar. The researcher used qualitative method with purposeful sampling. After doing some research, the researcher found some morphological errors on students’ writings in 1B class on their final examination paper academic year 2019/2020 by using purposeful sampling that selectively used one class among two classes to understand the core of problem better. Between eight types of morphological errors, the students had simple past tense incorrect as the highest error with 58,09% and comparative adjective/adverb incorrect as the lowest error with 0,33%. This result showed that most of students have lack of understanding in past tense while they have understood comparative adjective/adverb well. In order to reduce students’ lack of morphological understanding, the researcher suggests that teacher should be able to give more knowledge about morphology and how to create the word properly by fully knowing about grammar, especially the past tense one.
