PENG Yuan(School of Foreign Languages,Guangdong University of Technology,Guangzhou,Guangdong 510090,P.R.China)  
Based on the theory of EA(Error Analysis) and IL(Interlanguage),the present study investigates prepositional errors committed by Chinese EFL learners.Corpus approach is adopted,and CLEC(Chinese Learners' English Corpus) is used.In the corpus,two groups of EFL learners at language proficiency CET Band 4 and Band 6 are chosen as the subjects.And all the prepositional errors committed by the subjects are classified into two main categories: errors of prepositional phrases and errors of simple prepositions,which are subdivided into five sub-categories(pp1,pp2,wd3,wd4,and wd5).This study aims to find out the most often used prepositions and also use of these prepositions by the subjects.The factors behind simple prepositional errors are also under discussion,such as L1-related factors,L2-related factors,cognitive factors and factors related to teaching strategies.The implications of the findings for EFL teaching in China are also discussed.
