    All I am sure of is that it is good to be both accurate and fluent. Why are you desperate? :)

    Could you expand a little- it isn't clear what you mean. There are various theories of accuracy, such as defining it, or measuring it, or looking to see whether it is a good thing or not.

    Chomsky-
    He splits accuracy into two
    Competence- what the speaker knows- if they make a competence error, it is because they don't know the rule.
    Performance- this is where they know the rule, but make a mistake in practice.

    The question is a bit vague.
