Abstract

This study focuses on analyzing the nominal group construction of the students’ written texts. Nominal group here refers to a group of words which has a noun (a word which names a person, place or thing) as its head word and includes all additional information related to that noun. This discourse analysis will investigate the types of nominal group construction which is mostly found in the students’ written text and the tendencies of the students in applying the nominal groups in their written texts. The unit analysis of this study is nominal groups written by the students. The students here refer to the fourth semester students of English Department of Tidar University (Universitas Tidar) who join writing class. Following Gerot and Wignell’s theory (1994), most of the students apply Deictic-Ephitet-Thing construction in their texts. Based on the data analysis, it is suggested that the lecturers should introduce various construction of nominal group to the students in order they can write interesting texts (not monotonous).
