The taxonomy to be developed should be able to organize these Significance of the study 15 errors into a logical system of classification. Through this, explicit description of various Chinese L2 word order errors can be achieved, specific sources of these errors can be traced and instruction of Chinese L2 word order can be enhanced. Building on the findings of relevant linguistic studies of Chinese word order and Chinese L2 word order acquisition, this book aims to achieve two principal objectives: (1) to critically evaluate existing word order error taxonomies; and (2) to develop a comprehensive taxonomy of Chinese L2 word order errors to enable explicit description and specific explanation.

French allows the adverb to occur between the verb and its object, hence subject-verb-adverb-object (SVAO) order, and prohibits the adverb from occurring between subject and the verb, namely, subject-adverb-verb (SAV) order; English has the opposite word-order configurations, namely, it allows SAV order, but prohibits SVAO order.

However, the L2 research discussed above shows that this is not the case for the earlier formulation of the pro-drop parameter nor for the verb movement parameter.
