Grammar is an essential requirement toward a successful result in learning any language, including English. The grammatical error in speaking is tolerable since people focus more on the message. On the contrary, people have to pay more attention both to what they want to say (substance) and also how they are going to express their ideas (medium) in writing. The grammatical errors in writing may/will distort and disturb the coherence of the piece of writing By using correct grammatical rules, it will ensure good writing. It is for this reason that, I am eager to analyze the grammatical errors in the writing assignment of the basic I level students at KELT (Key English Language Learning). I use qualitative method since I will identify and classify the type of grammar errors and find the frequency of the occurrence of the errors made by the students of KELT. While doing this, I will also provide the correct forms for the errors. In this research, I am not concerned with the reasons why they produce grammatical those errors. As soon as a grammar rules is broken, an error has been committed. In conducting the thesis, I use the theory of Jack. C. Richards based on his book, ?Error analysis Perspectives on Second Language Acquisition?. He classifies the grammatical errors into 6 categories. They are Errors in the Production of Verb Groups, Errors in the Distribution of Verb Groups, Miscellaneous Errors, Errors in the Use of Prepositions, Errors in the Use of Articles, and Errors in the Use of Questions. After analyzing the data, the writer only finds 4 kinds of errors, namely, errors in the Production of Verb Groups, miscellaneous Errors, errors in the use of prepositions and errors in the use of articles. Most students tend to make errors in the production of verb group, especially in the agreement of verb with subject and tenses. Finally, l recommend that the teacher and students pay more attention on the internalization of grammatical rules. I hope that this thesis will give the teachers and students a better understanding about grammar.

Therefore, they are also supposed to be competence in communicating ideas well through written language. In communicating ideas through an essay, the students should make the writing coherence so that the message conveyed is transferred well to the readers. For that reason, being coherent is important for students of writing in producing their essay. One of the techniques used to achieve coherence in writing is applying transition signals. While, according to Coffey in Communication Through Writing transition signals are important since they will give the readers to comprehend the core of the text. This present study emphasizes on the use of transition signals that leads to text comprehension. The problem which the writer investigates is how the students use the transition signals to maintain the writing coherence in the essays writing of the Students Writing III at the English Department of Petra Christian University. In her research, she uses theory of Margaret Pogemiller Coffey about transition signals and the theory about coherence by Alice Oshima and Ann Hogue, Moreover, she uses Fransica’s thesis about An Analysis of the Coherence on Classified Advertisement in Jakarta Post, and Amelia?s thesis which dealt with A Study of Cohesion in Lateral-Quarterly PBE Magazine. The approach of this study is qualitative descriptive because the data is in the form of words rather than numbers. Furthermore, the writer collects the data from the assignment produced by the students of Writing III at the English Department of Petra Christian University. The data are obtained by collecting 5 essays in one occasion, randomly, in order to avoid subjectivity. After that, the Writer investigating those data based on the research questions. From the data analysis, the writer finds that there are 10 types of transition signals which are used in the essays of Writing III?s students. There is 1 type which is not used by the student. Furthermore, the writer finds that most of the use of transition signals in the students? essay is correct. It takes 93.19% which is correct and 6.81% is not correct.

This research is written to reveal local and global errors produced by the first writing class students in their journals. The study of local and global errors is the study on the communicative effect classification. It focuses on distinguishing between errors that seem to cause miscommunication (global) and those that do not (local). This study is conducted with the hope of giving a contribution to second language learners in the process of their second language acquisition. By evaluating the errors produced, this thesis is hoped to be able to help learners to learn when they correct the errors. Students and teachers here are expected to have a better understanding on the importance of making errors. This is a descriptive-qualitative study, as the writer describes and explores the errors without making any generalization from the findings. Here, the writer acts as the key instrument to collect the data. The errors in this study are identified and examined based on standard English grammar by Quirk and Greenbaum. The major theory applied was Politzer and Ramirez’s linguistic category taxonomy to classify the local errors into categories and subcategories, while Dulay and Hurt’s and Hurt and Kiparsky?s classifications of global errors were used to classify and explain the global errors. He found that most errors found in this study were considered local. Only three cases out of 311 errors found in this study were global. The students made almost all the subcategories of local error found in the Politzer and Ramirez’s linguistic category taxonomy. Noun phrase deviation was the most common error. For global errors, the students used wrong sentence connector and missing cues to signal obligatory exceptions of syntactic rules.
