Bad Hyphen – when grammar goes bad, or how to see some humor and learn from the one’s mistakes
This sentence appeared in my main blog, RandomRoutes, a few days ago. And what’s wrong with it? I had a superfluous “the” near the end of the sentence. I did not catch it as I read it out loud to myself. And my proofreaders did not catch it.How did I find it, you may ask? I tried Grammarly, the automated proofreader and your personal grammar coach. This was the first error it pointed out. I looked at the screen in disbelief, but it was true.I do not agree with everything that Grammarly suggests. For example, it suggested that the line “my position was eliminated” should not have been in the passive voice. But I had intentionally used the passive voice. Many other items, including better word choice, were excellent suggestions.
I’ll be using Grammarly user for my future blog posts.
