Description The aim of this paper is to present the variety of criteria that can be followed to classify mistakes in written Spanish. This variety (Vázquez, 1999) will allow us to establish a typology of errors in order to orient our investigation towards more precise correction during our lessons. In order to achieve this goal, we will follow the methodology of Error Analysis (Corder, 1967) within the Acquisition of Second Languages and Applied Linguistics. At the same time, we will analyze a corpus of essays written by Czech and Slovak college students to show to what extent a specific typology of errors is suitable to correct them. In particular, we will apply this typology to morphosyntactic errors to find out three different scenarios: some mistakes can be classified into one category; some mistakes can be classified into more than one category simultaneously; and some other mistakes will not fit into any category, so they will need an adaptation of the typology. The conclusions of our investigation will reveal the advantages and disadvantages of applying this method of marking and will lead us to discuss the different ways of error correction.
