A Contrastive study of Advanced Swedish Learners' Mastery of English Grammar
Halmstad University, School of Humanities (HUM).

Abstract [en]
This paper is based on a translation test, which focuses on contrastive items, and the data have been gathered from advanced learners of English at the University College of Halmstad. The main interest has been to investigate whether knowledge is improved from the A- to the B-level, but also to find out whether contrastive- and cognitive theories are able to predict which features will be most problematic for the students. The results indicate that contrastive theories indeed are right when it comes to a majority of error types, and that students seem to transfer rules from the L1 could be spotted. In those cases, cognitive theories have been consulted in order to find other plausible explanations for the occurrences of certain errors.
