Common Mistakes in English Grammar


English grammar can be tricky, and even the most seasoned writers and speakers make mistakes from time to time. In this blog article, we will explore some of the most common grammar errors and provide examples to help you avoid them.

1. "Can I" vs. "Ca I"

One of the common mistakes in English grammar is the incorrect use of "ca I" instead of "can I." The correct phrase is "Can I," which is short for "Can I have" or "Can I do." For example:

  • Incorrect: Ca I borrow your pen?
  • Correct: Can I borrow your pen?

To avoid this mistake, remember to use "can" instead of "ca" when asking for permission or inquiring about the possibility of doing something.
