Error Analysis of Persian Learners of Hausa Language: Cognitive Approach to Errors

Rajdeep Singh


Error analysis is the tool to discover the cognitive processing every learner goes through in order to learn the second language. In our study, we examine the situation for Persian learners of Hausa. The results showed both transfer and inter-lingual errors.  After analyzing the inter-lingual errors, we encountered with a distinct type of error, tense compounding error. Therefore, we could build up further the cognitive processing to see where and how this error occurs. From the teaching perspective, we analyzed the areas where errors occur more frequently and we introduced some teaching strategies to facilitate students learning. Furthermore, we contrasted the phonological system between Persian and Hausa to interpret the phonological errors and to find ways to deal with these errors.
