Is the Editors Clan capable of correcting all types of grammatical errors?

Language is structured using grammar, which is used to create well-formed sentences. Often we don't realize we are making Grammar mistakes, which is why the Editors Clan can help. Among the most common grammar mistakes are:

1. Wrong word use or confusion

This can happen when you choose the wrong homonym (e.g., their/they're/there) or mispronounce a word. It can also happen when you misuse jargon or company-specific lingo.

2. Vague pronoun references

Pronouns like "this" and "it" can become confusing if not used correctly. Make sure you use specific nouns when possible and revisit your pronoun usage to ensure clarity.

3. Faulty sentence structure or parallelism

This usually sounds choppy or incorrect. It can be fixed by rearranging the words or phrases in the sentence or adding or removing words.

4. Unnecessary shift in verb tenses

Keep the verb tense consistent throughout if you're describing something that happened in the past. Shifting tenses can confuse the reader and make the writing sound amateurish.

5. Fused (run-on) sentence structure or sprawl

This happens when two independent clauses are jammed together without proper punctuation. Insert a comma and coordinate conjunction (for, and, nor, but, or, yet, so) to fix it. If the clauses are too long or complex, turn one into a new sentence.

6. Lack of pronoun/antecedent agreement

This occurs when a pronoun (he, she, them, their, etc.) doesn't agree with the noun or pronoun it refers to (called the antecedent). Make sure the pronoun matches the antecedent in gender and number.

7. Sentence fragments

This is a partial sentence masquerading as a full one. To fix it, combine it with the previous or following sentence or turn it into a complete sentence.

8. Incorrectly used pronouns

There are three main types of pronouns: subject (I, you, she, he, it, they), object (me, you, her, him, it, them), and possessive (my, your, hers, his, its, theirs). Make sure to use the correct type in each sentence. Also, be careful not to use a reflexive pronoun (myself, yourself, herself, himself, themselves) when the antecedent is not the subject of the sentence.


These are some of the most common grammar mistakes that can trip you up. By being aware of them, you can catch them more easily and avoid them in your writing.


If you're ever in doubt, consult Editors Clan to take a look at your work. You can avoid these mistakes and make your writing shine with extra care.
