It is not a big deal to get grammatical errors in your content but ignoring them is something serious.

There are many common grammatical mistakes that can be occurred while writing anything whether it is a blog or something else.

And the good thing is, it is not that difficult to get rid of them.

To remove all the grammatical issues, we need to follow some steps but first of all, we are going to mention what mistakes are common and how to highlight them.

So, let’s get started.

What are the common grammar errors?

As we have mentioned above there are several common errors that can be easily appeared while writing something.

So, we have shortlisted the most common and important mistakes. All of these are enlisted below.

1.    Incorrect spellings

Starting from the very basic mistake i.e., incorrect spelling and this problem is faced by most of the students and even writers.

As there are many words that sound the same but have a different meaning or intent.

This is the most common reason for using incorrect spellings. Let’s take an example.

We have two words that have entirely different meanings but sound the same and these words are “Accept” and “Except.”

The meaning of “Accept” is consent to receive but the meaning of “Except” is other than something.

We are pretty sure that now you are clear about incorrect spellings and how does it appear in content intentionally / unintentionally.

2.    Form of verbs

We can say that choosing the form of a verb is totally depends on the type of content like if you are writing a story, you must use the second form of a verb because it is usually written in the past.

There are commonly six forms of verbs and choosing the right one is something big to deal and these forms of the verb have a great impact on the content.

All these six are listed below.

•    Dictionary form.
•    Third-person singular.
•    The infinitive.
•    Past participle.
•    Past simple.
•    Present participle.

3.    Choosing the inaccurate article

Undoubtedly, this is also one of the most common grammatical mistakes but the scenario of correct article usage is very simple.

Let’s understand this with an example.

If we are mentioning a common thing, for example, a pen then we use “a” with this pen but when we are going to mention a specific pen e.g., blue pen then we have to use “the.”

Actually, “a” is an indefinite article and used with common things but “the” is a definite article used with specific terms and things.

This is the most common example and we have mentioned the simplest solution or science of using the correct article.

How to highlight all the above-mentioned grammatical issues?

No doubt, all the mistakes that are mentioned above are somehow difficult or nearly impossible to highlight manually so, what to do then?
