Common Mistakes in English Grammar

Mistake 1: Using (R) instead of ®

One common mistake in English writing is using (R) instead of the registered trademark symbol ®. This mistake often occurs when individuals are trying to indicate that a word, phrase, or logo is a registered trademark.

For example, instead of writing "Nike(R)", the correct way to indicate a registered trademark is by using the symbol, like this: "Nike®".

Did you mean ®?

If you intended to use the registered trademark symbol but mistakenly wrote (R) instead, the correct symbol to use is ®. By using the correct symbol, you ensure that your writing follows proper grammar and adheres to trademark guidelines.
