Common Mistakes in English Grammar

Mistake: Using "hear" instead of "here"

One common mistake that people make in English grammar is confusing the words "hear" and "here". Although they may sound similar, they have very different meanings.

The word "hear" is a verb that refers to the act of perceiving sound through your ears. For example:

  • I can hear the birds chirping outside.
  • She couldn't hear what he was saying because of the loud music.

On the other hand, the word "here" is an adverb that refers to a specific location or position. It is used to indicate that someone or something is in the present or close by. For example:

  • Come here and sit next to me.
  • I left my keys here on the table.

It is important to pay attention to the context in which these words are used to ensure that you are conveying the correct meaning. Mixing up "hear" and "here" can lead to confusion and misunderstandings in your communication.

Correct Usage: "Here"

When talking about a location or position, always use the word "here" instead of "hear".
