32 spelling and grammatical errors that are really annoying…

Grammar and its many rules seem daunting to deal with but without it we wouldn’t be able to communicate effectively and efficiently. Most of us are actually aware of poor grammar without realizing it and notice errors when they occur. Ironically, the fact that errors happen so often is probably due to our technological connectedness; auto-correct has made us lazy, and in our need to rush we rely on shortcuts, knowing that technology will kick in. We also don’t write freehand anymore, but use Word or other similar word-editing tools, which of course come with spell-check and warnings about any mistakes we’ve made. Fortunately most of our everyday grammatical errors are common mistakes and boil down to choosing the right word or right punctuation. Paying attention to these seemingly minor details can avoid major embarrassment. Embarrassment such as….
