Then, in order to improve its performance, it is augmented by feedback that is obtained from the writing of learners. Finally, it detects errors by applying rules to the mass count distinction.  ...  This paper proposes a method for detecting errors in article usage and singular plural usage based on the mass count distinction.  ...  Acknowledgments The authors would like to thank Sekine Satoshi who has developed the OAK System. The authors also would like to thank three anonymous reviewers for their useful comments on this paper.  ...

Classification of English language learner writing errors using a parallel corpus with SVM

Brendan Flanagan, Chengjiu Yin, Takahiko Suzuki, Sachio Hirokawa
2014 International Journal of Knowledge and Web Intelligence  
Finding errors is essential to providing appropriate guidance in order for learners to overcome their flaws. Traditionally the task of finding errors in writing takes time and effort.  ...  As a part of this research, we propose the use of a classifier to automatically analyse and determine the errors in foreign language writing.  ...  Writing error detection using data mining Various methods can be used for the automated detection of writing errors, as machine/statistical learning algorithms.  ...

A Method for Detecting Determiner Errors Designed for the Writing of Non-native Speakers of English

Ryo NAGATA, Atsuo KAWAI
2012 IEICE transactions on information and systems  
This paper proposes a method for detecting determiner errors, which are highly frequent in learner English.  ...  To augment conventional methods, the proposed method exploits a strong tendency displayed by learners in determiner usage, i.e., mistakenly omitting determiners most of the time.  ...  Conclusions This paper proposed a method for detecting determiner errors by exploiting the strong tendency of learners in English writing to often mistakenly omit the determiner.  ...

Feedback on the Feedback: Sociocultural Interpretation of Saudi ESL Learners' Opinions about Writing Feedback

Rami F. Mustafa
2012 English Language Teaching  
From a sociocultural perspective, the feedback practices do not adhere to the best practices of the theory, resulting in major hindrances to the students' learning/writing development.  ...  The findings suggest that the Saudi students do not think highly of the feedback, and that the feedback they desire is markedly different from what they receive.  ...  By analyzing the feedback practices and the learner responses of two teacher-student pairs, in terms of peer-feedback, Hyland revealed a mismatch between the goals of teachers and students.  ...
