Common mistake or way (was) it

One common mistake that people often make when speaking or writing is using the wrong verb form or tense. One such error is using "or way" instead of "or was".

Using "or way" Incorrectly

When talking about the past, the correct phrase to use is "or was" instead of "or way". Let's look at some examples:

  • Incorrect: I didn't know which path to take, so I chose the left one or way.
  • Correct: I didn't know which path to take, so I chose the left one or was.

In the incorrect example, "or way" is used instead of the correct phrase "or was".

The Correct Usage

When you want to describe an action that happened in the past, use "or was". Here are some examples:

  • Correct: Yesterday, I was at the grocery store.
  • Correct: She was really tired after the long day at work.
  • Correct: They were happy to receive the news.

In each of these examples, the correct verb form "was" or "were" is used to indicate an action that took place in the past.
