Abstract

This study analyzed the errors produced by the Balinese souvenir vendors in speaking English to the tourists. The problems that the writer wanted to discover are the grammatically deviated expressions demonstrated by the Balinese souvenir vendors and the factors that are responsible for those errors. The data of this study were collected by secretly recording the conversations of the vendors while they were talking or bargaining. Then the writer transcribed the conversations and analyzed them using Error Analysis approach which consists of three steps. First step is the recognition of idiosyncracy. Second step is the accounting for a learner's idiosyncratic dialect. The last step is explanation. The classification is based on the Linguistic Category, Surface Strategy taxonomy, Comparative Analysis, and Communicative Taxonomy. Finally, the origin or factor that causes error was discussed. The data analysis shows that most of the errors found in the conversations are errors in grammar. The type of error most likely to occur is omission errors. All of them are interlingual or internal errors and none of them is the error which caused miscommunication. The main reason that underlies the existence of errors is the intrusion of the first language structure into the target one. It could happen because the differences between rules of both languages made the learners confuse. Then they apply their native language pattern into the target one, thus cause errors. The consequence is disorganized English. It will hamper the communication, so sometimes the purpose of trading do not achieved. Therefore, the vendors should develop their competence, by studying more and improve their weaknesses. Hopefully, this thesis will be able to help people identify the errors experienced by the Balinese vendors, i.e, the location, the origin, and the cause, so that the way out could be found.
