Write Good English Following These 12 Rules

There is no question that writing shows how educated you are, but learning the mechanics is another story. I have to accept that I fail to proof read my posts before they are uploaded, for some reason I switch the order in the typed letters (typographical errors) and I frequently forgot I am writing, and input the same colloquial expressions as I usually talk.

Learning with'e's suggests we should begin to look over the rules of the English language. What we must enforce? We have to get grammar right, "steering clear of repetition and avoiding all the avoidable little syntax errors you could of avoided."

Writing good English means you have to:


1. Verbs has to agree with their subjects.
2. Prepositions are not words to end sentences with.
3. And don't start a sentence with a conjunction.
4. It is wrong to ever split an infinitive.
5. Avoid cliches like the plague. (They are old hat)
6. Be more or less specific.
8. Parenthetical remarks (however relevant) are (usually) unnecessary.
9. Also, too, never, ever use repetitive redundancies.
10. No sentence fragments.
11. Don't use no double negatives.
12. Proofread carefully to see if you any words out.
