Even the best writers and bloggers can make this grammar mistake. You may know the difference between there, their, and they're, but you're writing so quickly, you don't realize you just typed the wrong word for the whole world to see!
The English language is a tricky one! The most common grammar mistake is a homophone.
noun: homophone; plural noun: homophones
each of two or more words having the same pronunciation but different meanings, origins, or spelling, e.g., new and knew.
Commonly misused words (homophones):
write, right, rite
to, too, two
If it's been a while since you've been in an English class, you might not recall where exactly a comma goes either, or what about apostrophes?
I stumbled upon this awesome new app that everyone needs! Please, people, save the English language! This app is free to download! I have it on my Firefox browser and it is amazing!!! It even corrects my Facebook messages! Then, I installed it on my mac and it corrects anything I type!!! As a writer, it has been amazing to have my proofreading automatically done for me as I type! My editor will be so impressed!
So if you type anything, a Facebook post, a blog, a term paper, working on a book, a resume, you name it...you need to install this today!
I must confess, homophones are not my only grammar issues. I misuse punctuation, I am one of the worst spellers I know, but now thanks to this little app, no one will have to know! What is your biggest grammar mistake?
