Abstract

One of the major problems in language teaching is developing grammatical accuracy. This paper proposes that using error correction based on a functional grammar in a task-based learning approach may be a suitable solution. Towards this end an emic (using categories intrinsic to the language) functional grammar of the verb phrase is proposed and a description of how this fits into the focus on form component of task-based learning is provided.

Keywords

error correction; functional grammar; task-based learning
