Missing wordYour subject and verb (or pronoun and antecedent) don’t agree.Awkward – this sounds strange, most likely from weird grammar.

Can you find a better word or collocation? This one is weak.

Capitalize or un-capitalize. Ex: tom should be Tom, Has should be has

Comma splice. You need a semicolon between two full sentences

Dangling modifier. The introduction verb phrase refers to the wrong subject.

This is not a full sentence – it’s only a fragment. Add noun, verb, etc.

Indent paragraph.

Informal: avoid slang, colloquialisms, abbreviations, jargon.

Non-collocation: these words don’t go together

Non-idiomatic expression. We don’t use this expression in English.

Begin a new paragraph

You are repeating words or ideas. Words or ideas. Words or ideas… 😉

Run-on sentence. You need to add periods and break this up.

Spelling error

Wrong, unclear or missing transition.

This is unnecessary. Delete this.

Word is unclear. Usually a pronoun – what is the noun it replaces?

Word form error

Incorrect word order

Wrong or inappropriate word(s).

Unparallel sentence (items in a list should be same word form).

Wrong verb tense (past, present, future, etc.)

I don’t understand

 I really don’t understand. J
