Top 10 Grammar Mistakes to Avoid (Part Two)

words

In my previous post, I covered 5 of the top 10 grammar mistakes to avoid in your writing. Today, I'm going to share the last 5 mistakes. Just to remind you, I'm calling on everyone to catch any mistakes I've made and correct me.

6. Then vs. Than

This one is pretty simple. As a general rule, use "then" when you're talking about time and "than" when you're making a comparison.

  • Then: "I will see you then." You may also use "then" under other circumstances, such as when you're qualifying a preceding statement or making an "if . . . then" statement.
  • Than: "Ernie is taller than Bob." "You're better at this than I am."
