Over-regularisation

From Teflpedia

Over-regularisation is the noted tendency for language learners — both first language learners (especially young children) and second language learners — to apply regular language rules incorrectly to irregularities.

For example, in English, *“I buyed a pen", *"three sheeps", etc.

Over-regularisations can generally be understood, and in real life the listener may ignore errors and not correct.
