The Queen’s language is a globally recognized tongue we are all opportuned to speak.
Though some say that Ghanaians are facing diverse problems because they are using a borrowed language from the British, I must confess it is a great privilege to learn and speak it.
We all make mistakes while speaking English, we must learn to make corrections and avoid making the same mistake twice.
In today’s article, we will be looking at some grammatical errors people often make and their corrections.
They are provided below;
A. Please Sir/Ma
This one is common and many people are guilty of this.
Don’t ever Say; “Please Sir”, it is wrong. If you must use “please” in your sentence, it should come after the subject and not before it.
So instead of saying “Please Sir”, say; “Sir Please”, or “Ma Please”, this is the correct thing to say.
B. I Am On The Road
This one is also one of the common errors.
Do not say; “I Am On The Road”, rather say; “I Am On My Way”,
C. The Story Is Sweet
This one is not so common, it is an error committed by only a few, especially children.
Avoid embarrassment. Do not say; The story is sweet, rather say; “The story is interesting”.
D. Off Head
This one is common amongst students. The expression; “I know It Off Head”, is totally wrong. The right thing to say is; “I know It Off Hand”.
