English is something of a quirky language. It’s difficult to spell, rich in vocabulary, and low on verb transformation. If you’re studying English, here’s some features you should know.
✦ It’s a Germanic language, so it has a lot in common with German and Dutch!
✦ The spelling is pretty historical, and gives you a clue to the origin of the word. Unfortunately, it doesn’t give you much of a clue as to the pronunciation of the word.
✦ It only has a past and a present tense, with the future tense mostly created by using extra verbs.
✦ It doesn’t have very many inflections, at least not ones used for creating different tenses. Instead, they’re used for creating new words.
Since English is tricky, there are plenty of mistakes that even someone who studies hard can make. Here’s some of the commonest mistakes that ESL speakers make:
✔ Prepositions: Prepositions are a rather tricky piece of language no matter what you’re speaking, so it’s no wonder they can be hard to get right.
✔ Subject/Verb Agreement: The strict rules of subject-verb agreement make it easy to get mixed up.
✔ Spelling: A top grammar mistake in English texts is spelling. A spellchecker can help, but there are many words that sound the same but look different, or look the same but sound different.
✔ Word order: Especially in questions, English word order is tricky. “Is fixed the porch?” should be “is the porch fixed?”, for instance.
✔ Plurals: Since English has irregular plurals, it can be hard to know what’s the right one. Children could turn into childs or childrens. This is a very understandable mistake that can be fixed with practice.
✔ Articles: A, an, and the are tricky words that vary a lot between different languages. Even if you speak a language that uses versions of all three, the way they’re used tends to vary. It’s easy to say “I got car” instead of “I got a car.”
English Proofreading and Editing
When you’re editing English text, there are a few tips and tricks to watch out for. Here are a few of the ones we use:
✎ Check for homophones: Homophones are very hard for English speakers to master, so making sure you’re using the right part of each word is a smart idea. Check a dictionary if something sounds wrong.
✎ Read out loud: When checking grammar, reading aloud is a great tip for proofreading. It can also help you determine if your sentences are too long or if a sentence sounds clumsy.
✎ Read backwards: Reading backwards forces you to forget the familiar parts of your paper, allowing you to look at it with new eyes. This is good for typos.
✎ Check transitions: Transitions are an important part of a strong paper. They help signal to your reader that what’s coming up. If you’re new to English, finding good transition sentences can be hard, so devote special attention to these.
✎ Simplify sentences: Subject-verb agreement is hard in complex sentences. However, temporarily removing subclauses and other complex structures helps a proofreader understand what was being said and how best to express it.
