    Abstract

    This study is concerned with the error analysis of derivational morpheme. It is aimed to find out what kinds of errors and the most frequent error in which the students made in forming derivational word. It is a descriptive qualitative research which focuses on the error analysis of derivational morpheme. The subject of this study was the students of the Eighth Semester Students of the English Department of UNNES in the Academic Year of 2015/2016. There were 25 students for the try-out test and another 25 students for the real test. The data were collected from a test and questionnaires. The students were tested in order to identify the errors of derivational words they made. The test consisted of 27 items which were divided into 9 parts. They are derivational words from adjective to adjective, noun to noun, adjective to noun, verb to noun, adjective to adjective, verb to adjective, noun to adjective, verb to verb, and noun to verb. The questionnaire was used to represent their perspective about derivational morpheme including their difficulty in doing the test. In analyzing the data, the researcher used error analysis method which consists of identifying errors, describing errors, explaining errors and error evaluation. The result showed that out of the total errors (146), the majority of errors were deriving noun from noun and adjective from verb with 30 errors. This is relevant to the questionnaire result which showed the highest percentage (60% or 15 students) found most of students found difficulty in deriving noun from noun. The collected errors were analyzed based on the Surface Structure Taxonomy that specifies four types of errors namely omission, addition, misformation and misordering. There were 146 errors which consisted of 98 (67.1%) misformation, 34 (23.3%) omission, and 14 (9.6%) addition. From the result, it can be concluded that errors were found in all categories of derivational morpheme and it was crystal clear that the most frequent errors were misformation. Therefore, the writer suggests that the students should learn and practice more in deriving morphemes.
