Title: AN ANALYSIS OF THE USE OF HAVE BY ADULT LEARNERS IN AN OPEN DISTANCE LEARNING INSTITUTION
Author: Hazidi Bin Abdul Hamid
Abstract: Declining mastery of the English language is a cause of great concern and consternation in Malaysia, particularly in the education domain. OUM seeks to address issue of learners’ English language readiness by making four basic level English based courses compulsory to all undergraduate students. This paper looks specifically at the grammar of the language used by OUM learners in two of the courses mentioned above to ascertain their mastery, or lack of it, of a specific grammatical construction, the Perfective HAVE in present perfect sentences based on a corpus derived from their coursework. This paper analyses learners’ use of the perfective HAVE in the present perfect tense a corpus of learner submitted assignment papers. This syntactical construction is chosen because it is generally regarded by learners as one of the harder tenses to master. The findings will show that while there are indeed issues the learners’ mastery of the said construction, they are not entirely unable to use the construction.
