In language learning, mistakes and errors have been inevitably produced. Learners make errors in the process of constructing a new system of the language they are acquiring. Thus, learners’ errors have long interested many researchers in the field of second language acquisition (Corder, 1981; Ellis, 2008). This paper presents major approaches used in studies on native language interference (also known as language transfer, L1 interference, and linguistic interference) as well as various aspects of error analysis including definitions of errors, their significance in language teaching and learning, classification of errors, causes of errors, and previous studies on error analysis.
