There are mistakes which are we a surround by everyday; these mistakes may be in leaflets, billboards, newspapers. These mistakes could be either minor or even major mistakes. The mistakes, which are made, could be either grammar, punctuation and even spelling blunders are made.
Here are a few examples showing us these mistakes I have found. The first mistakes are a mistake I have found on a charity leaflet. The mistake made is grammatical LADIES, GENTS, CHILDRENS CLOTHING, BLANKETS, SHEETS, SHOES, BAGS, CURTAINS, BELTS, BATH , HAND TOWELS, UNDERWARE, COSMETICS, TOILETRIES, PERFUMES, CD’S, VIDEOS’S. The following sentence should have been used with the following conjunction for it to be grammatical acceptable. LADIES, GENTS, & CHILDRENS CLOTHING, BLANKETS, SHEETS, SHOES, BAGS, CURTAINS, BELTS, BATH AND HAND TOWELS, UNDERWARE, COSMETICS, TOILETRIES, PERFUMES, CD’S, VIDEOS’S.
Another mistake, which I had found within this same leaflet, was: ‘Please put items into the plastic bag/ bags leave visible driver could see. ” This sentence is easy to understand, however it is grammatically not acceptable. “Please put items into the plastic bag/s and leave it visible for the drive to see. ” The sentence should have been written like this so it grammatically makes sense. The third mistake I have found is off a t-shirt. This mistake is made deliberately however it is a mistake, which is made in this spelling, and also wrong punctuation is used. The word you’re used instead of the word your.
There is also no need of the apostrophe to be present. This is grammatically wrong.. The fourth mistake is a spelling error. “Lock your car or loose it”. The word loose should be spelt lose and not loose. Mistake 5 “Comming soon” this is a spelling error as coming does not consist of two ms it only consists of the one m. Mistake 6 A menu in a restaurant has a mistaken on it. “Double chees”. This is grammatical not correct as it is not spelt correctly, however when pronouncing the words out it sounds correct. Mistake 1 and 2 Mistake 3 Mistake 4 Mistake 5 Mistake 6.
