Keyword : Morphology, Syntax, Writing Morphology and Syntax are essential components of learning languages. Morphology deals with word structure while syntax deals with phrase or sentence structure. This study was aimed to analyze the types of morphological and syntactic errors in studentsÂ’ writing, the dominant error and the causes of errors themselves. This study was also taking place in the Muhammadiyah Malang University. Qualitative research design was engaged in this study. The instruments used were the document and interview.

The findings of this study revealed that morphological errors cover: (1) Plural errors, (2) Possessive errors, (3) The third person singular verb errors, (4) Regular past form errors.
