The analysis of English and Maithili subordination is fully based on the primary and secondary data.

By making the contrastive analysis of English and Maithili subordination, it also predicts the errors that Maithili speakers are likely to commit while learning English and Maithili subordination. It also calculates the errors actually committed by 60 Maithili speaking students of grade IX and X of Dhanusha district through Errors analysis.
