Abstract

This study is a descriptive quantitative study which aims at finding out the dominant frequency of mistakes on the use of forms of other, gerunds and infinitives made by the students of Structure II (ING-105) course at the English education study program of faculty of teacher training and education of University of Bengkulu. The subjects of the study were 36 students and the total sampling was applied. The data was collected by using a set of questionnaire constructed based on the syllabus on the material of forms of others, gerunds and infinitives and then was counted and analyzed by using percentage formula to find out the dominant mistakes. The finding shows that the students made more mistakes on gerunds and infinitives material especially on special expression followed by –ing, gerunds as the object of prepositions and common verbs followed by gerunds. Meanwhile on the forms of others materials, the students made more mistakes on the use of another as singular adjective and the other as plural adjective. Hopefully the findings can be beneficial information for the grammar teachers for further improvement of the teaching of English grammar especially on the forms of others, gerunds and infinitives.
