Abstract

Indirect speech is often used by someone in retelling something what people already told in the past. It is possible to have misunderstanding without using the right grammar. Therefore, before changing the direct speech into indirect speech, as well as possible we have to understand how to change pronominal forms, verb tense, demonstrative and adverbials of time and place. On the other hand, the students often get difficulty in employing it. Based on the consideration above, it is important to analyze the types of error made by the third semester students of English Department at University of Muhammadiyah Malang in using indirect speech focuses in the form of simple present tense, and specified into four aspects, they were positive , negative, interrogative and imperative sentences. This study used a descriptive quantitative research design because it was aimed to describe the types of error in each aspect and determining the most dominant type of error based on the four aspects. The population of this study was the third semester students and 60 students from I and J class were taken as sample using cluster random sampling. The data of this study were students’ error in using indirect speech that they were collected from the result of indirect test in written form. Based on the result analysis, it was found that the number of error made by 60 students in employing indirect speech was 351. The frequent error was in imperative sentences (27.63%), it was divided into 7.12% was errors in omission, 4.27% was error in addition, 15.38% was error in misformation, and 0.85% was error in misordering. The next is interrogative sentences (26.78%), it was divided into 2.56% was errors in omission, 3.99% was error in addition, 19.66% was error in misformation, and 0.57% was error in misordering. The next is positive sentences (23.08%), it was divided into 4.48% was errors in omission, 10.54% was error in addition, and 7.69% was error in misformation. The last is negative sentences (22.51%), it was divided into 3.13% was errors in omission, 5.41% was error in addition, and 13.96% was error in misformation. Based on the percentage above, it showed that the most dominant error was in imperative sentences. It is hoped that the teacheras will use those findings in their teaching and learning of English in order that the students’ errors can be minimized again.
