How to Avoid Common Grammar Mistakes When Speaking
Just between you and I...do you overcorrect your grammar? Actually, it should be "just between you and me" as a prepositional phrase. You wouldn't say "between you and he," you would say "you and him," right? Now that we have that cleared up, you can discover other easy ways to check up on how you've been speaking lately; it's never too late to try to switch to the grammatical, and who knows, you may impress somebody.
Respond on the phone with, "this is she" or, "this is he" when someone calls and asks if you are there. "This is her" or, "this is him" would not be the proper grammatical form.
Avoid saying "more better" or any variation of this--"more faster" and so on. Simply say "better" or "faster".
Refuse to say, "I could have went." Replace this instead with, "I could (or should or would) have gone." On the same note, replace, "I could have ate" with, "I could have eaten."
Use, "I sneaked" instead of, "I snuck."
Never speak the words, "I never did nothing" or, "I don't got no..." This is called a double negative. You never did anything. You don't have any.
