Abstract

Language contact that occurs within the students as bilinguals in the teaching of B2 (Indonesian) causes mutual influence between B1 and B2. This mutual influence can occur at every level of linguistics, one of which is the morphological level. Such matter can cause difficulties in the teaching of B2 and also be the source of language errors. Data on language errors that the students experienced in the language learning process need to be analyzed and clarified the type of error by the teacher and determined how to fix it afterward. The results of the language errors analysis can be used as feedback in improving language teaching. This article described aspects of language errors at the morphological level in students' descriptive texts. By using the qualitative descriptive method, 3 aspects of language errors were found at the morphological level, namely language errors at the level of affixation, language errors at the level of reduplication, and language errors at the level of compounding.
