A structured writing test of 150 words essay was given to thirty students of fourth semester students of University of Islam Syekh Yusuf Tangerang, faculty of teacher training and education of English Department.

It is found that the students formed 134 times of different format of nouns. The learners formed interlanguage of pluralization in which they formed count nouns from what the TL rule acknowledges as non-count nouns by adding articles (a/an).

The pluralization forms also consist of characteristics of previously learned languages, features of L2 and general interlanguage characteristics. (More)
