All of us know how important is it to speak in English? But, speaking correct English also plays a significant role.
Imagine you meet somebody who speaks in English, but wrong English!
What impression will you have about that person?
Not that good…right?
So, my lovely readers today I am going to share some common grammatical errors that one tends to make while speaking in English.
· Use of wrong Tense
A lot of people start talking about their past using present tense. Even I have encountered a lot of people talking about historical events using present tense. It is like you have almost revived Shah Jahan , who already had died long ago.
a) Wrong: Shah Jahan is the fifth Mughal Emperor of India.
Correct: Shah Jahan was the fifth Mughal Emperor of India.
b) Wrong: I did not went to School.
Correct: I did not go to School.
· Say or Tell
A lot of people often get confused where to use “say” or “tell”?
Say: It means expression of ideas.
Tell: It is used to provide information in written or spoken form.
Wrong: Say me something about yourself. (Here we are not expressing something, instead we are asking for information.)
Correct: Tell me something about yourself.
· Using comparatives/superlatives together
In a sentence one should not use comparative and superlatives degrees of Adjective together.
Wrong: She has done more better in her examinations.
In this sentence better is the comparative degree of adjective good and more is the comparative degree of adjective much.
Correct: She has done better in her examinations.
· Does versus Do:
A lot of people get confused with do and does. Does is used with singular form of subject and Do is used when subject is plural, I or you.
Wrong: Does you cook food?
Correct: Do you cook food?
Redundancy is the unnecessary repetition of words in a sentence that makes the sentence unattractive.
Wrong: Repeat again the sentence.
Repeat means say again.
Correct: Repeat the sentence.
· Misuse of pronouns:
People often get confused with his, hers and its. If you are unaware about an animal’s gender, never use his or her with that.
Wrong: I am going to narrate a story: The Dog and his bone.
Correct: I am going to narrate a story: The Dog and its bone.
So, Readers next time when you speak in English, keep the list in mind.
