A Public Service Announcement: Common Grammar Goofs

As a fully paid-up member of the Grammar Police, I loved this!

Nicholas C. Rossis

Copyblogger and BlueGlass have created this awesome infographic with some common grammar mistakes, and how to avoid them. Enjoy!

My children’s book, Runaway Smile, is mercifully free of grammar goofs. Don’t believe me? Read it for free and find out for yourself!

  1. “Wrong! Fool!” Ha, that made me laugh out loud. I know all these rules, of course, but I’d never be so Frasier-Cranish to say I’ve never committed any of them. The brain does weird things when we’re in a hurry online. I try to reread all my comments and tweets before I publish them, but sometimes even that might fail.

    1. Yes, the brain can literally in principal mess with even myselfs’ proper use of the goodest grammar 😉 Needless to say, this made me laugh too.

      1. Another one I see, but is more difficult, is hone vs. home in. I’d been using ‘hone in’ incorrectly for years. Wasn’t that long ago I finally learned the difference. Now I see ‘hone in’ where ‘home in’ should be used in novels. But most people probably don’t notice.

        1. That’s a good one. So it’s ‘hone’ your skills, but ‘home in on’ a target… I think I’ve been getting it right, but I confess, I had to look it up to be sure!
