Abstract: Ximena Abarca-Espina, from Chile, graduated with a Postgraduate Diploma in Linguistics in 1999. She is currently living in New Zealand. In The Third Person, she tries to find out why a ‘simple’ error – the lack of the third person singular present tense suffix -s, seems to persist in the English of many advanced learners of English. Her fieldwork is based on data from her own ESL students at a seminary in Suva.
