Grammarly is a software program that claims to be “the world’s best online grammar checker.” While I do use Grammarly regularly in my business—in fact, they emailed me today and said I checked 1,698,451 words this year—and benefit from it, I wouldn’t go so far as to say it’s the best in the world. I’m still waiting for that one.
With that said, I found a recent Grammarly blog post that listed the ten most common mistakes made by their customers. Some of our all-time favorites showed up on the list—who and whom, commas, hyphens—and a few unexpected ones, verbing, won’t and wont, altogether.
So, for this month’s writing tip, take a look at what Grammarly has to say about the errors it finds most often: Top Ten Writing Mistakes of 2016.
Do you make any of these mistakes? What is your most common writing error? Tell us below in the comments section, and we’ll start our own top ten list.
