A diagnosing procedure to be used in intelli- gent systems for language instruction is presented. Based on a knowledge representa- tion scheme for a certain class of syntactic correctness conditions the system carries out a thorough analysis of possible error hypoth- eses and their consequences. A comparison with earlier attempts shows a clearly im- proved precision of diagnostic results. First of all, the procedure concentrate s on an exact localization of rule violations, but - if desired - is able to infer information about factual faults as well.
