The Most Common Errors in English
 
السلام عليكم

إيماناً من إدارة المنتدى ومشرفيه ومشرفاته عموماً ، ومشرفي ومشرفات قسم اللغة الإنجليزية خصوصاً بأهمية اللغة الإنجليزية في جامعتنا ، ولأنها اللغة التي تٌدرس بها مواد جميع التخصصات (لدرجة البكالوريس) ، أحببنا أن نٌقدم لكم موضوعاً جديداً كلياً ، يتحدث عن الأخطاء الشائعة في اللغة الإنجليزية والتي قد تٌواجه الدارس أو الدارسه سواءً من ينتمي لهذا التخصص أو التخصصات الأخرى ، وقد تشرفت بأن أكتب مقدمة هذا الموضوع ثم يليها مثال لكيفية فهم وإستيعاب محتوى هذا الموضوع و إختصاراً لوقتكم الذي ستقضونه في البحث سواءً في قواميس اللغة الإنجليزية أو في كٌتب القواعد وما إلى ذلك نتمنى أن يستفيد كل من يقرأ هذا الموضوع نظراً لأهميته

وما هذا العمل إلا جٌهد مشترك لمشرفي قسم اللغة الإنجليزية نتمنى أن يحوز على رضاكم ، وهو مأخوذ من جامعة كامبرج لإختبارات اللغة الإنجليزية


وكما هو مٌعتاد ستٌكتب الأخطاء كما هو معروف بالترتيب الأبجدي في اللغة الإنجليزية

سيتكون كل خطأ من 3 تعليقات رئيسية هي بالتتالي :

1- الخطأ الشائع (ويوضع علامة x أمامه) ويٌكتب الخطأ باللون الأحمر
2- تصحيح الخطأ (ويوضع علامة √ أمامه)
3- تعليق يشمل سبب التصحيح للخطأ ويكتب التعليق باللون الأزرق


There’re a number of words and phrases which regularly cause difficulty for learners of English of all nationalities students often spend a lot of time ******ing through general dictionaries and grammars for information about these difficult items
This work is taken from a book titled 'Common Errors', of course it talks about the common mistakes that the speaker or writer might commit

We start with letter A

No 1: a

x I hope you all have a enjoyable stay
√ I hope you all have an enjoyable stay


Always use an (Not a) before a word beginning with a vowel sound : ‘an egg’, ‘an envelope’
x My husband is doing a MSc in civil engineering
√ My husband is doing an MSc in civil engineering


Use an (Not a) before an abbreviation that begins with a vowel sound

x Sometimes it's difficult to live a honest life
√ Sometimes it's difficult to live an honest life


Use an (Not a) before words beginning with h when the h is not pronounced like an honor, an hour and so on

x A bottle of milk is in the fridge
√ There's a bottle of milk in the fridge
x A party will be at the language school
√ There will be a party at the language school


In many sentences, the verb be is used to mean 'exist' or 'take place', if the subject hasn't been mentioned before, it's placed immediately after the verb and the sentence begins with there

Hello Folks ! I'd like to share my Information with you !

A and an are the indefinite articles. They refer to something not specifically known to the person you are communicating with

A and an are used before nouns that introduce something or someone you have not mentioned before

A and an are also used when talking about your profession

Now , here is the most importent point to be considered when using a and an :


You use a when the noun you are referring to begins with a consonant (b, c, d, f, g, h, j, k, l, m, n, p, q, r, s, t, v, w, x, y or z)

You use an when the noun you are referring to begins with a vowel (a, e, i, o, u)

Pronunciation changes this rule.

If the next word begins with a consonant sound when we say it, for example, "university" then we use a. If the next word begins with a vowel sound when we say it, for example "hour" then we use an

We say "university" with a "y" sound at the beginning as though it were spelt "youniversity"
So, "a university" IS correct.

We say "hour" with a silent h as though it were spelt "our"
So, "an hour" IS correct.

Actually the previous tips are some interpretative note of mine , Please correct me if i'm mistaken

Finally I would like to thank you Gentlemen for your high participation and caring to spred and share your knowledge in this wonderful section .

Best Regards
Oky Doky

You're welcome and as previously said that we hope it's useful to us. I'm not surprised by your passing by because all of you care about English Language and our teachers are always on our side, so thank you

Check these out

No 2: a lot of

x She makes us do a lots of homework
√ She makes us do a lot of homework
√ She makes us do lots of homework


a lot of, or lots of WITHOUT a

No 3: above

x There were above a hundred people in the crowd
√ There were over a hundred people in the crowd


Don't use above with numbers (unless referring to points on a scale): ' He is over eighty years of age,' 'I receive over twenty letters a day,' But 'Don't let the temperature get above thirty degrees,'

No 4: above-mentioned

x I would be grateful if you would send it to the address above-mentioned
√ I would be grateful if you would send it to the above-mentioned address


Above-mentioned ALWAYS comes before the noun it modifies: 'above-mentioned person', 'above-mentioned company',

No 5: absent

x The sales manager was absent at the meeting
√ The sales manager was absent from the meeting


absent from, not at

x I went to her house at four o'clock but she was absent
√ I went to her house at four o'clock but she wasn't in


absent = not present at something that you're supposed to attend: absent from school

No 6: Accept

x These people accept to take risks in order to succeed
√ These people accept the need to take risks in order to succeed

x The company will not accept to buy new machines
√ The company will not agree to buy new machines


We accept a person's advice, opinion, or suggestion
But agree to do something. Compare: 'I accepted her suggestion and agreed to see the doctor that evening'


x To tell you the truth, I can't accept people who think about money all the time
√ To tell you the truth, I can’t stand/bear/abide people who think about money all the time


can’t stand/bear/abide = can’t tolerate
