Humorous Errors

U of Minnesota has an article entitled “Humorous Reminders of Common WRiting Mistakes.”

Here are the first six:

  1. Avoid run-on sentences they are hard to read.
  2. Never use no double negatives.
  3. Use the semicolon properly, always where it is appropriate; and never where it is not.
  4. Reserve the apostrophe for it’s proper use and omit it where it is not needed.
  5. Verbs has to agree with their subjects.
  6. No sentence fragments.

There are a total of 35.  I have to confess that I don’t see the sentence without a verb very often.
