افتراضي مشاركة: The Most Common Errors in English


No 42 : Although


x Although I was frightened, but I couldn't scream
Although I was frightened, I couldn't scream


When the subordinate clause begins with although, the main clause doesn't usually begin with but or yet


x Although the problem with the car, we enjoyed the journey very much
In spite of/ Despite the problem with the car, we enjoyed the journey very much


In spite of/ Despite are prepositions and are usually followed by a noun or noun phrase. Although is a conjunction and must therefore be followed by a clause; note the alternative: 'Although we had a problem with the car, we enjoyed the journey very much.'


x Even although he couldn't swim, he jumped straight into the water
Even though he couldn't swim, he jumped straight into the water


When even is used like to give emphasis, it's followed by though, NOT although

No 44: Always

× I have always the feeling that she enjoys teaching us
√ I always have the feeling that she enjoys teaching us

When there is no auxiliary verb, always is placed immediately before the main verb: 'She always arrives late.' However, when the main verb is be, always is placed immediately after it: 'He is always in a bad mood.' Otherwise always goes immediately after the (first) auxiliary verb: 'You should always take care when crossing the road'.

× He's the most boring man I've always known
√ He's the most boring I ever known

Always = all the time; at all times; every time: 'Have you always lived in London ?', 'When I start singing she always laughs'
Ever = at any time : 'Have you ever been to Paris ?'

× While he was writing the letter, he always scratch his chin
√ While he was writing the letter, he kept scratching his chin

Always = 1- at all times; all the time: She always has a lot of work to do. 2- every time: Why do you always ask the same questions ?
Keep + v-ing = do something repeatedly

An amount of money: money is an uncountable noun

No 46: an

Use a NOT an before a word beginning with h, unless the h is not pronounced : a house , a half, But an hour, an honor

Note that an may also be used before a word beginning with h when the syllable it introduces is unstressed: ' an historical novel' , Howver this usage is usually regarded as old-fashioned nowadays

By the way, I did this simple effort by ******ing the Internet (unfortunately, I do not remember those websites) and reading some books (e.g. Practical English in Usage, and English grammar in use and common Mistakes in English).

The purpose of this work is what I hope it to be helpful and useful for you and make you moor self-trust and moor comfortable when you use English.

I know that many members in aou forum wrote about English mistakes before I did, anyway I look forward to adding something new.

If you brothers and sisters find any error or missed words please correct them, I will be thankful …

Before I say anything I thank you for the wonderful work and I do think that it's useful for others but in your examples, both the correct and incorrect sentences are correct and both can be used.

Thanx ^^

Thanks sister dyvi for your concern. But actually these common errors had been found in the writings of the EFLs, students who use English as a Foriegn Language. So as a native speaker, they often don't make these mistakes. Of course the publication of such work encloses the view between native speakers and the EFLs


Thanks for your passing by and have a great day

This little story should help you understand the difference between the and a, an:


A man and a woman were walking in Oxford Street.
The woman saw a dress that she liked in a shop.
She asked the man if he could buy the dress for her.
He said: "Do you think the shop will accept a cheque?
I don't have a credit card.
