Common Mistakes in English Grammar

English grammar can be tricky, even for native speakers. There are many common mistakes that people make, often without even realizing it. In this article, we will address some of these mistakes and provide examples of how to correct them.

Mistake: Confusing "he wos" with "he was"

One common error is using "wos" instead of "was" when referring to the past tense of the verb "to be." For example, someone might say, "He wos a great singer," instead of "He was a great singer."

This mistake often occurs because the pronunciation of "was" sounds similar to "wos" in some dialects. However, in standard English, the correct form is "was."

Correction: He was a great singer.

If you are unsure about the correct form to use, a tool like Linguix grammar checker can help you identify and correct these types of mistakes.
