Abstract

This study is mainly aimed to describe the students’ error in applying punctuation marks (period, comma, and colon). Punctuation is important in writing, because accurate punctuation is essential in clear and effective writing, especially in academic writing. This study answers three questions:” (1) What kinds of error are created by the students?, (2) What is the dominant error used by the students?, and (3)What are the causes that make the students produced the errors of period, comma, and colon?”. The writer uses a descriptive qualitative method to categorize and analyze the error produced by the students. The data is collected from a text entitle Going to Sanur Beach which is taken from internet. There are three findings in this study. First, students produced the error in each of the punctuations (period, comma, and colon), and the total number of the error is still high. Second, the most dominant error produced by students is in applying comma, with the total number of 90 errors or 51.7%. And then, it is followed by the error of period of 49 error or 28.2% and colon with 35 error or 20.1%. Third, there are some causes that make the students produce the errors: (1) Students lack of accuracy in applying punctuations (period, comma, and colon), (2) The students omit some of the punctuations, and (3) the students have little knowledge in applying punctuation. Based on the data in this study, there are some students who do not understand how to use period after abbreviation, and most of them do a comma splice in the sentence.
