  •  Yuanying Wang    


This thesis aims to probe into the relationship between language transfer and the three error types of Chinese ESL learners’ acquisition of passive voice. On the basis of analysis of the result of a self-designed test, I come to a conclusion that under-passivization is the main characteristic of Chinese learner’s passive acquisition and negative transfer has a strong effect on Chinese learners’ acquisition of passive voice.
