Origins of the error/mistake distinction[edit]

According to w:Error analysis#Error analysis in second language acquisition, the error/mistake distinction was first conceptualised by Stephen Pit Corder in “The significance of learners’ errors”, published on pages 160–170 of the International Review of Applied Linguistics, volume 5 (1967). Unfortunately, I have no access to that journal article, so I can't check whether Corder used the term error/mistake distinction or whether he treated the concept avant la lettre. — Raifʻhār Doremítzwr ~ (U · T · C) ~ 11:58, 13 February 2012 (UTC)
