Unit 2: Word choice and grammar

Punctuation and sentence structure errors (covered in Unit 1) account for a large proportion of grammatical errors. Other errors include subject-verb agreement, incorrect position of words within a sentence, and confusion with participles. Errors in word use may be related to grammar, but they may also be caused by incorrect spelling or confused meaning. All these areas of language use will be covered in this unit.

Please be aware that in some cases there is a difference between British English spelling and US English spelling.
