    Hi Guys,

    I try to remember one linguistic technical word. I search on the net and i couldn't find it. Here the definition: The fact for a non native speaker to use a foreign language in a broken manner.

    Waiting for your help

    Thanks

    Thanks Unnecessary. Thank us after we help you.

    Welcome to the forum.

    Please note my amendments to your post above, marked in red.

    Like Dena11, I can only think of "broken English" (or whatever language you're talking about). I'm not sure it's a technical term in linguistics though.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
