Abstract

This research aimed at studying grammatical errors in using quantifiers made by the second year students of SMPN 1 Tulungagung. This study tried to investigate the students’ errors and the frequency of occurrence of the errors made by the second year students of SMPN 1 Tulungagung in using quantifiers. This research was based on the fact that the students have not mastered in using quantifiers well. The design used in this study was descriptive quantitative research design because the researcher wanted to describe the students’ errors and to give information about the frequency of occurrence of the errors made by the students in using quantifiers by using objective measurement and statistical analysis of numeric data. The population in this study was the second year students of SMPN 1 Tulungagung in the 2008/2009 academic year consisting of nine classes (396 students). This study took the population because the second year students have got the material of quantifiers. Therefore, the sampling technique used here was simple random sampling and 40 students were taken as the sample. The instrument was applied using a test on the use of quantifiers. This instrument was tried out first to the second year students of SMPN 1 Tulungagung who weren’t included in the sample. The result of the tried out showed that the instrument used by the researcher was reliable. Based on the result of the data analysis, it was found that there were 145 (29.23%) errors in using a little instead of a few; 66 (13.31%) errors in using a few instead of a little;65 (13.10%) errors in using much instead of a lot of; 56 (11.29%) errors in using some instead of any; 39 (7.86%) errors in using much instead of a little; 36 (7.26%) errors in using many instead of a few; 33 (6.65%) errors in using many instead of much; 30 (6.05%) errors in using much instead of many; and 26 (5.24%) errors in using any instead of some. In addition, the students also made errors in the use of each quantifier. That is they made 145 (29.23%) errors in using a little; 134 (27.02%) errors in using much; 69 (13.91%) errors in using many; 66 (13.31%) errors in using a few; 56 (11.29%) errors in using some; 26 (5.24%) errors in using any and no errors in using a lot of and plenty of. It shows that the highest percentage of the frequency of occurrence of the errors is the error in using a little.
