Common Grammar Mistakes to Avoid

Mistake: Using "originally born in" instead of "born in"

One common mistake many people make is using the phrase "originally born in" instead of simply saying "born in."

Example: She was originally born in New York.

Correction: She was born in New York.

This mistake arises from the unnecessary inclusion of the word "originally." In most cases, it is redundant to use "originally" when referring to someone's place of birth.

However, if there is a specific reason or context to emphasize the originality, then the use of "originally" can be appropriate.
