Abstract:
Based on a review of a carefully-designed research ,where the most common English syntactic mistakes made by our native Arabic-speaking university fresher students of English as a second language are thoroughly and carefully discussed .The researchers casted a shadow on at least seven categories of errors which are distinguished and describe verbal errors (the use of tense, phase ,aspect, voice ,verb formation, concord, finite, non-finite verbs) , relative clauses( interlinguas errors, structural misrepresentation, simplification) adverbial clauses( comparison, purpose, result, concession, manner: sentence structure, articles( definite and indefinite) prepositions. It is concluded that most source of these common errors is mainly due to the influence of Arabic the native language , and that is clearly shown in processing English syntactic structures. Arabic speakers in general adopt certain strategies similar to those of first-language learners, including simplification and over generalization,( ERIC, 1996-Jan) English syntactic Errors by Arabic Speaking learners: Reviewed ( Noor, Hashim H. ).A number of desperate approaches to language, ranging from cognitive linguistics to stochastic implementations of optionally theory, have challenged the classical distinctions between knowledge of language .How realistic are the requirements and need of a National curriculum for the teaching of English in general and grammar in particular in primary stage. This paper reviews these urgent and necessary demands, and also reports the results of an informal survey of practice done by our fresher university learners
