#2: Pronouns
•
•
Does the pronoun agree with the noun it's replacing?
Is it in the correct case?
#3: Gerunds (-ing verbs)
•
•
•
Is the gerund replacing a main verb and creating a sentence fragment?
Is it part of a list that isn't parallel?
Has it been incorrectly switched with an infintive?
#4: Prepositions
•
•
Is the preposition idiomatically correct?
Does it incorrectly complete a word pair?
#5: Adjectives and Adverbs
•
•
Is the modifier of the correct type?
Are -er and -est used appropriately? (Rare)
#6: Conjunctions
•
•
Is the conjunction creating a sentence fragment?
Does it logically connect ideas?
#7: Nouns
•
•
Is the noun part of a faulty comparison?
Is the sentence consistent in its use of plural and singular nouns? (Rare)
#8: Relative pronouns (who, which, that, etc.)
•
•
Is the correct pronoun used for the context?
Does the pronoun have a clear noun antecedent?
Other issues to watch out for
•
•
•
•
"Any" underlined often indicates an illogical comparison
The presence of comparison words like "than," "like," and "as" also tends to
indicate illogical comparisons
A sentence with a list often has a parallelism issue
Make sure to watch for redundancy: the use of different two words or phrases
that have the same meaning
