Mistake: Out + Perform

One common mistake in English grammar is the incorrect usage of the phrase "out perform".

Many people mistakenly write it as two separate words, "out perform", instead of writing it as one word, "outperform". This error often occurs because the words "out" and "perform" are both individual words and can be used separately in other contexts.

Incorrect: She always tries to out perform her colleagues.

Correct: She always tries to outperform her colleagues.

In the incorrect example, the words "out" and "perform" are written separately, which is grammatically incorrect. The correct usage is to combine them into one word, "outperform".

It's important to pay attention to the spelling of words and use them correctly to ensure clear and effective communication in written English.
