Here are a few basic grammar rules to pay close attention to:

When you write "a" or "an" before a noun, it has to match the noun. This is done simply by using "a" if the word starts with a consonant, and using "an" if the word starts with a vowel.

Vowels: a, e, i, o, u.

An exception is the word "hour" because you can't hear the "h", and therefore it sounds like it begins with the vowel "o."

Examples:

An hour

A dog

An example

A key

_________________________________________________

Another thing to be careful about is verb agreement.

If the subject is plural, then the verb has to be singular (in most cases)

Example:

The dog runs. ("dog" does not end in an "s" and therefore the verb, "runs" has to end with an "s".)

The dogs run. ("dogs" ends with and "s", so "run" does not.

There are a few exceptions to this rule, one of the most common exceptions is verb "to be", but just use the following rule:

I am

You are

He is

She is

It is

We are

They are

Also, watch out for the words "everyone", "one of", "and", "or", etc.

Everyone is referred to as a group of people; therefore, it is a singular subject which requires a singular verb.

Ex: Everyone reads.



"One of" is what confuses most native English speakers. You have to watch out for this one. The most logical way to think about these sentences is to identify the subject.

One of the dogs runs. One is the subject in this sentence because only "one" of the dogs runs. If all the dogs were running, the sentence would look like this: The dogs run.

This technique works very well with almost all sentences.



If you have a sentence like "John and Jerry run" You have to remember that TWO boys are running, not just one; therefore, you have to think about it like "they run", and then you will find it easier to understand.



The word "or" is a little harder to figure out:

The girl or the boy runs. This is one of the easier examples because you can tell that only one of the children runs.

The girl or the boys run. This one is a bit harder because the subject could either be singular (the girl), or it could be plural (the boys); in this case, you have to use the subject which is closest to the verb. In this sentece, the subject which is closest to the verb (run) is the one you have to consider. So, think of it as "he boys run."




Commonly misspelled words:

accidentally, agreement, argument, analyze, benefited, existence, parallel, receive, weird, therefore, subtle, pastime, particularly, etc.

I hope this little guide helped some people more than confusing them. Feel free to correct any mistakes I might have made, nobody's perfect.

Thanks for reading this,
