Users of Quora & Reddit recently started two identical threads regarding the english mistakes they find annoying. We have listed them and they are as follows:
“it’s” instead of “its”:
“ The police department said that it’s equipment is outdated ” & I will be brought to fury, Michael Wolfe record as Quora’s best comment.
Use “it’s” as a short form to replace “it is”.
Use “its” as a pronoun to exhibit ownership.
a) It’s raining.
b) The dog wanted its bone.
Using “I” & “Me”:
“I” will consistently be the concern of a sentence or clause and “me” will be the object.
“Me” should follow any preposition (on, of, in etc) & function as both indirect & direct entity in a sentence.
“Than” instead of “Then”:
“Than” is used for differentiation and “Then” reveals time.
a) We would rather go at the party than stay home.
b) We left the party & then went home.
