Errors in the English Language Many people make mistakes writing in English In this paper I will identify some of these problems and try to correct them Some of the issues I will discuss are Where a shorter and more understandable word can be used instead of a more complex longer word If a sentence has an extra word that is not necessary then it can be removed Finally using a metaphor or simile and other figures of speech We take our first example from The Stone Angel by Margaret Laurence which on page 209 second paragraph she says Lottie was podgy as a puffball she could of used Lottie was chubby as a puffball This sentence has the exact same meaning but is more understandable This sentence was not significant because it did not really capture an image in my head The next example I will provide is from the internet this article was regarding the attacks on New York City two weeks ago As I was reading the article I came upon this sentence the horrific tragic events that occurred in New York City I think that this sentence has one too many words The way the sentence should have been written was the tragic events that occurred in New York City The final example is coming from the internet from wwwyahoocom from the news section This article was also about the terrorist attacks on the US The news that I read went like this the people responsible for the attacks on the US had a heart of stone This sentence uses a metaphor and it means that the people responsible for this had no respect for humanity They were cold blooded killers As we can see from the above examples no matter whether you are an editor
