Abstract: The present paper discusses some of the most common morphological, morpho- syntactic, and syntactic errors made by Bulgarian students who study Serbian as a foreign language. The corpus has been created on the grounds of written assignments submitted by students from first to fourth year of studies. The focus is on students’ errors in the areas of morphology and syntax in particular. The aim of the analysis is to systemize the most common errors in the aforementioned areas and thus to facilitate a better awareness of the potential language errors in the process of teaching Serbian as a foreign language.

Key words: teaching Serbian as a foreign language, language errors, morphology, syntax, error analysis
