Common mistake verb before 'gave'

A very common mistake many people make is putting the verb before the subject in a sentence. This error often occurs when we are trying to emphasize the action rather than the doer.

Subject-Verb Agreement

One of the most basic rules in grammar is ensuring that the subject and verb in a sentence agree with each other. This means that a singular subject should have a singular verb, and a plural subject should have a plural verb.

  • Incorrect: The dog barks loudly. Correct: The dog barks loudly.
  • Incorrect: The dogs bark loudly. Correct: The dogs bark loudly.

Incorrect Verb Tenses

Another common mistake is using the incorrect verb tense in a sentence. This can result in confusion about when an action happened, is happening, or will happen.

  • Incorrect: Yesterday, I buy a new car. Correct: Yesterday, I bought a new car.
  • Incorrect: He will goes to the party tonight. Correct: He will go to the party tonight.

Confusion Between 'There', 'Their', and 'They're'

Many people often confuse the words 'there', 'their', and 'they're'. Each of these words has a different meaning and usage.

  • Incorrect: Their going to the store tomorrow. Correct: They're going to the store tomorrow.
  • Incorrect: There car is parked outside. Correct: Their car is parked outside.
