Grammatical errors that spoil the impression of professional work

We all know it. While writing we seem to be clear, clean, understandable, accurate (though maybe a bit brief, right?), Once there is work in the world, that is, on paper, we see all its flaws black on white. Even the most mistakes that we should watch out for at elementary schools are the most shouting of us.

Of course, it’s not always a question of spelling knowledge. Awakening nights when writing, time stress, but also bachelor’s work mixed with watching a bulletin board on Facebook will do the result.

While work is still on the computer, everything can be fixed. Before throwing it to the USB, squeeze and hand it over to the study department, check it with the attentive last eye. Even if it seems almost superhuman for a hundredth time, make sure that an innocent mistake in a visible place does not shame you. Focus in particular on a few basic points:

spelling help

Ypsilon versus soft, not just selected words. Always make sure you have the basic spelling checker turned on while you are writing. Yes, it is used by translators, proofreaders, writers, journalists, and your professors. Writing error-free mail is one thing to write thirty pages, especially when you focus on styling, tables, page numbering and waiting for a message on MESSENGER, it’s much harder.

But even this little miracle cannot do everything. Check well written i / ys, but also duplication (morning ritual versus early Middle Ages), word breaks and hooks in the Short Dictionary of the English Language, which is also available online. Maybe you use English all your life, but our native grammar has its pitfalls. So consult with experts.

unfortunate commas

Writing a diploma or bachelor’s thesis does not require stressful or depressing moments. The most common is the question of commas. Is he supposed to be here or not? The division of sentences into assignments and subordinates, which we still remember from elementary school, is fine, but it contains more exceptions than rules.

In this case, two things will help you: read a lot, especially boring and complicated books, where the sentence is really enough, or check the correctness of the text with the Rules of Spelling. And do not stress if you do not write work from the English environment, be sure that many of your professors have a problem with commas. And if you still feel insecure, simply use short sentences.

Uppercase and lowercase letters

Although we have grown out of school desks, we are still learning. Especially if we are creating the content of the diploma thesis and the names of the streets, places, hills in the Tatras or the names of flowers and trees. Again, the Spelling Rules will serve you with names. Of course, current. In case of titles in the names, there are changes you should register here.

Foreign words, names, names

Check Latin names, English terms, and externally sounding names. You should know that da Vinci is written with a small d, but a big V, or that the name Montgomery is written ypsilon. These names may not even correct the spell check correctly. So help Wikipedia or search engine and verify writing on a verified source.

Important details include members from English or French who like to wander into our work. Be aware of their use, French and English have a clear view of their grammatical use.

If you still have any doubts when editing the text, put it in the hands and have it corrected. It’s definitely worth the chocolate or a little reward.
