Abstract

The purpose of the study is to identify which prepositions are problematic and analyse the factors that may contibute to the difficulties faced by Elementary school students in Surabaya. The research is done by providing the students with a set of simple sentences in English from each of which the preposition is omitted. Each sentence is accompanied by a static picture representing the missing preposition. Error analysis is, then, used to identify difficult prepositions and to indicate possible causes of students' difficulty. The results of the analysis suggest that students have difficulties in understanding the 'locational' and especially the 'motion' prepositions. The pictorial and non-pictorial factors might also contribute, to their problems.
