Abstract

Sentence is a key to have a good writing. Writing with only short, simple sentences is boring. Therefore, using complex sentences in writing can help the students modify their writing skill. Unfortunately, many students often face difficulties and tend to make errors in producing English complex sentences. The main objective of this study is to find out the types of errors, and to reveal the most frequent error in producing complex sentences in adjective clause, adverbial clause, noun clause, and introductory verbal modifier made by the sixth semester students of English Department at University of Muhammadiyah Malang. This study used Mixed Methods research design. Here, the researcher applied cluster random sampling technique to determine the sample because it was the simplest way to draw the population in order to give an equal opportunity of every member of the population. The data in this study were obtained from the document. The document was the sixth semester studentsÂ’ final exam of writing subject. Based on the result analysis, it was found that there were grammatical errors which were classified on global errors which belonged to communicative effect taxonomy, namely: wrong order of major constituent, errors in missing, wrong, or misplaced sentence connectors, and missing cues to signal obligatory exception to pervasive syntactic rules. The findings of this study showed that that the most frequent grammatical error made by the students were error in producing complex sentences of missing cues to signal obligatory exception to pervasive syntactic rules 303 (74,3% ) errors, followed by missing, wrong, or misplaced sentence connectors 61 (14,9%) errors, and wrong order of major constituent were 44 (10,8%) errors. Based on the analysis, the most frequent error faced by the students in producing complex sentences was the material itself. The students still made a lot of errors in using the grammar. In this case, the students made errors because they did not understand the concept of the rules in producing complex sentences. They could not use the right verb, to be, and also the appropriate clause markers. It means that global errors of missing cues to signal obligatory exception to pervasive syntactic rules dominated in this study.
