Abstract

This writing examines the narration level in Jeanette Winterson’s novel The Powerbook (2000) by focusing on the concept of écriture feminine, referring to the structure and the form of narration.

Winterson’s works in the narration level exhibit the difference from the conventional narration forms. In The Powerbook, écriture feminine in the narration level is shown in the form of fragmented narration that comes in three different forms, namely: narcissistic narrative, public narration and demythologizing history. The result of the research points out that the narration form of the novel is a resistance toward phallogocentrism by demonstrating women’s writing that manifests the way women make sense of their world.

As result, the most common omissions found in the data are related to verb markers. Omission of main verbs and auxiliaries also occur, creating sentences without any verbs or grammatically necessary auxiliaries. Absense of these kinds of function in Indonesian is the main reason for this grammatical problem faced by the learners. In addition, omissios of suffix -ing were also found by the researchers in the data. These findings should be able to contribute to existing works on grammatical errors and increase the success of both teaching and learning of a foreign language like English.Key Words: error, grammar, omission, writing
