Abstract: This paper investigates errors in past tense marking in compositions of Singapore secondary school students. This study examines, firstly, what are the patterns of errors in tense and aspect in the compositions of secondary school students and secondly, what are the possible explanations to these errors in tense and aspect. Findings from this study reveal that lexical semantic of verbs can account for tense marking errors.
