Authors : Aqsa Younis .


This study is an attempt to investigate the Urdu ESL leaners’ errors under the theoretical tent of Interface modular approach presented by the Noam Chomsky (1995). Interface Hypothesis is a perspective on interfaces in L2 acquisition that has gained a lot of traction compares various interface types in grammars that are close to native in order to discuss the nature of the end state knowledge of highly skilled L2 speakers. For conducing this study, interface hypothesis others have pushed this idea, which they have dubbed the Interface Hypothesis. The idea is that, in so far as near-native speakers have issues at all, these are likely to be related only with certain interfaces. The hypothesis has developed over time. The aim of this study is to analyze the interface of syntax/ morphology of L2 English of Urdu Learners. For the analysis of morphology/syntax interface, the data is collected from 15 students of Grammar Model high school through essay writing. On these domains the data is analyzed ; inflectional morphology, arguments, loan words and phrasal verbs. Through the analysis of these domains the interface of syntax/ morphology of students is analyzed.
