也许你觉得这些都很简单,但是小心阴沟也会翻船哦,看看日常应用中,你有没有犯过下面的错误呢?

1. Loosefor lose

No: I always loose the product key.
Yes: I always lose the product key.

2. It's for its (or god forbid, its')

No: The techs have to check there cell phones at the door, and their not happy about it.
Yes: The techs have to check their cell phones at the door, and they're not happy about it.

4. i.e. for e.g.

No: Use an anti-spyware program (i.e., AdAware).
Yes: Use an anti-spyware program (e.g., AdAware).

Note: The term i.e. means "that is"; e.g. means "for example." And a comma follows both of them.


5. Effectfor affect

No: The outage shouldn't effect any users during work hours.
Yes: The outage shouldn't affect any users during work hours.
Yes: The outage shouldn't have any effect on users.
Yes: We will effect several changes during the downtime.

Note: Impact is not a verb. Purists, at least, beg you to use affect instead:

No: The outage shouldn't impact any users during work hours.
Yes: The outage shouldn't affect any users during work hours.
Yes: The outage should have no impact on users during work hours.

6. You're for your

No: Remember to defrag you're machine on a regular basis.
Yes: Remember to defrag your machine on a regular basis.

No: Your right about the changes.

7. Different than for different from

Yes: I got dizzy and had to lie down.
Yes: Just lay those books over there.

9. Then for than

No: The accounting department had more problems then we did.
Yes: The accounting department had more problems than we did.

Note: Here's a sub-peeve. When a sentence construction begins with If, you don't need a then. Then is implicit, so it's superfluous and wordy:

No: If you can't get Windows to boot, then you'll need to call Ted.
Yes: If you can't get Windows to boot, you'll need to call Ted.

10. Could of, would of for could have, would have

No: I could of installed that app by mistake.
Yes: I could have installed that app by mistake.

No: I would of sent you a meeting notice, but you were out of town.
