RINGKASAN


This study is conducted to analyze the error on the three simple tense – aspect systems by describing the errors and the pattern of errors occurred in the tenses made by students of FKIP Unsimar Poso. Objects of this research are 7 students who are joined in Structure II subjects of FKIP Unsimar Poso. The three simple tense-aspect systems are the simple present tense, the simple past tense and the simple future tenses. The data were taken from the student respondents’ writing. There were three topics of writing: daily activities, past experience and future activity. The theory of pattern from Azar is used to analyze whether the sentences are correct or incorrect. As a result, the students still did not understand enough about tenses. They made many kind errors in each tense. They still did not use an appropriate tense. The researchers found that almost all students made some errors in simple present tense and simple past tense. But only few students made errors in simple future tense. For the most common error in the simple present tense, the students used of Present participle instead of simple form (-s/-es form). In the simple past tense, the most common error is the use of simple form. Their sentence considered wrong or incorrect because they used simple form instead of simple past. The most common error that found in the simple future tense is the use of will + to instead of will + simple form.
