Frequently encountered errors

by admin

Here I have collected a few of my most common grammatical mistakes.Maybe someone will find them useful.

  • Coordinately
    Apparently, this mutant word was born out of a marriage between the words > dramatically and > coordinated The mysteries of its origin are shrouded in obscurity, but so far I have only encountered it in the sense of "cardinally.
  • Anyway
    In general

    A couple more mutant brothers, this time from the union > in general and > in general
  • Refrigerant
    The parents of this offspring are not known with certainty. It is very likely that one of the ancestors is > refrigerant but who else was involved in the process is unknown. There is speculation that this > halogen but he denies any involvement in it.
  • Too much
    Every time I see this variant spelling of the word > overly I’m tempted to ask: through which dibs and who are the dibs?
    UPD: As I was informed in the comments by comrade msapiens , "churs"-there do exist. Moreover, as it turns out, the word "chura" came precisely from the obsolete "through chura, " where the word "chura" is used in the sense of "edge, " "fringe." Nevertheless, in a modern language this sense of the word is practically forgotten, and the word "too much" became independent, is spelled confluently and with a "s". Not to mention the fact that the majority of authors of "too much" hardly use this spelling meaningfully, being aware of the origin of the word. 😉
  • By the way
    By the way

    If we were talking about the word > become (aka physique), then the second option mentioned might be appropriate. But it’s usually just a misspelling of the word > by the way Sometimes there is also a hybrid variant by the way
  • Future
    How does the word > future turned into this freak is a mystery to me. Unless from symbiosis with the word "blowing"…
  • Thanks in advance
    Thank you for earlier

    You can thank for something specific. If someone gave you something called the word " previously " (or " earlier "), gratitude for the deed could be expressed with just such a phrase as above. And if the thanks are given in advance, tentatively, the word > in advance is spelled together and with an "e". (It is also possible to spell "Thanks for the early apples.")
  • Ichny
    Perhaps the only word in the entire list given here that is often used intentionally to dilute an excessively serious text with a deliberately colloquial, vernacular vocabulary. Nevertheless, according to the rules of the Russian language it is correct to say > their
  • Scam
    A direct consequence of the desire of certain individuals to eliminate the letter "e" wherever its replacement with "e" does not cause ambiguity. The word > scam is spelled and read with an "e", not an "e"! If the "e" was spelled everywhere and not just where one wanted it, everyone would read the word "con" correctly, but as it is, many people assume that there is an "e" replaced by an "e".
  • According to something
    Illiterate clerical turn of phrase. It is correct to say according to something (but : "according to clause N of something, " since here "something" is already associated with the word "clause").
  • My birthday
    Once a year it’s like this day : when you were born. And that day is called birthday And since it is still a "day, " it is "mine, " not "mine.
  • Opening the door, it squeaked loudly
    Question for the puzzle: who squeaked – the door or the person who opened the door? It’s a very common mistake when one doesn’t follow object coordination in the deuteronomy and gets similar idiocies (or even worse)…
  • Verbs with -s/to-
    Yes, I know that there are a lot of rules in Russian, that they are complicated, confusing, hard to remember and even harder to understand… But the rule for verbs with -s/- is one of the easiest (if not the easiest)! All you have to do is ask a question about the verb. If there is a soft sign in the question, it will be in the verb, if not, then no:
    1. "I begin (what dot b ?) are going tot b "
    2. "He (what do . is ?) collects are."
    3. There is another, perhaps even simpler way to check: just throw out the "sya" suffix:

      1. "I want to teach.t b → I want to learnt b "
      2. "He washes . . → He washes is."

    PS: I don’t know if it makes sense to move it to Writing Right. On the one hand, the post is most directly related to this blog. On the other hand, the selection is extremely subjective and almost unstructured…
    UPD: Postponed.
