The errors at least can be categorized into twelve kinds of errors: tense-related errors, modal-related errors, infinitive-related errors, gerund-related errors, present participle-related errors, noun clause-related errors, pronoun-related errors, article-related errors, preposition-related errors, singular and plural-related errors, and word order-related errors. Those errors are caused by two aspects, they are inductive and deductive reasoning.
