Top Ten Grammar Peeves

From Grammarly:

  1. "Your" and "you're" are not the same word.
  2. Apostrophes don't form plural nouns.
  3. "There," "they're," and "their" are completely different words.
  4. The contraction of "could have" is not spelled "could of".
  5. "To," "too," and "two" are also completely different words.
  6. "Its" is the possessive for of "it." "It's" is the contraction of "it is."
  7. "Then" shows sequence of events. "Than" is used to compare nouns.
  8. "Affect" is a verb and "effect" is a noun.
  9. "Irony" does not mean "anything that is unexpected."
  10. Your pants are "loose". You "lose" your keys.
