The Persistency of Errors in English in Selected Classrooms in Saskatchewan Schools
Tronrud, Dorothy Isabelle
This study of the persistency of errors in English evolved from the seeming discrepancy between language as it is taught in our schools and as it is used by school graduates in everyday life. The study seeks to determine what errors have been found by other researchers to be most prevalent and the extent to which these errors prevail and persist in the language of Saskatchewan school pupils. It seeks also to make specific recommendations for the improvement of instruction in English language. The investigation would not have been possible without the assistance of the many classroom teachers who administered the test.
