This book analyzes the errors most commonly made in spoken and written English and presents them in a systematic, down-to-earth manner. It does not dictate grammar to the reader; rather, it presents the guidelines for English usage currently being observed by the most competent and careful speakers and writers. The most troublesome words and phrases—as well as grammatical terms—are listed alphabetically within 18 subject areas to enable the reader to check quickly on questions of usage. In each case, illustrative examples are given, and the guiding principle is stated for the reader to follow in avoiding the mistake and others similar to it. An extensive index for additional ease of reference helps make this book a handy tool for the modern reader who realizes that mere knowledge is no longer sufficient—that one must be able to express his knowledge clearly, forcefully, and correctly.

The Exercises in this booklet deal with common errors which are committed by students of English Language. The solutions to the exercises should be used by the students to verify the correctness of their own answers. All phrases are compiled and gathered from speakers who acquired English as a second or third language. This publication as a whole is specially compiled to help speakers of other languages improve their English studies. Although it is especially useful for adult learners, ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages), EFL (English as a Foreign Language), EAL (English as an Additional Language) students; junior, senior, middle school children who are learning English will benefit from its usage. Students who are studying other courses such as Business English and Postrgaduate Management will also benefit from ‘Correct English in 24 Hours’ in order to improve their English Language skills. This publication is also a useful resource for teachers of English Language. Even in countries where English is the first language, native speakers, especially primary and secondary school children still need help with grammar and literacy. Although grammar schools are not common today, English language (rather than merely literature) needs an equal if not more focus, especially in the school curriculum; a publication like this will assist those endeavours.

The Broadview Book Of Common Errors In English Fifth Edition

The Broadview Book of Common Errors in English offers full coverage of such common mistakes as commas splices, sentence fragments, words frequently confused, words frequently misspelled, mixed metaphors, and subject-verb agreement errors. In each case the problem is clearly explained, with examples illustrating both the nature of the trouble and how to put it right. Unlike many guides to grammar and usage, The Broadview Book refrains from dogmatism; it treats correctness in English not as an unchanging objective standard laden with moral overtones, but rather as a code of convenience that is extraordinarily useful in helping humans to communicate effectively and even elegantly. It thus retains an openness to the inevitable process of change in the English language, and recognizes that change does not imply debasement. The fifth edition has been updated throughout, and includes new material on capitalization; on the connections between clear writing and clear arguments; on academic citation systems; on business writing; and on particular difficulties experienced by those whose first language is not English.
