Grammar mistakes and spelling errors
From blog posts to emails, news articles and tweets, if there's an error in there, someone's going to comment on it.
The fact is that our brains are wired in a way that makes us all susceptible to grammar slip-ups.
Just think about it for a second. Even the fiercest Grammar Police person and the bestest editor makes mistakes, I've seen it many time.
Common grammatical errors such a "their" instead of "there" or "your" instead of "you're" and so on doesn't always happen because people don't know which word is correct (well, some people don't but most of us do). It happens because we focus on the content more than on the correct spelling of each and every word.
Did this make you feel better? Good!
Now spot the mistake in this GIF and comment on my post.
Storybook for children 4-12
When Grandma Rosa lost her hearing, Sandra and her parents became frustrated and sad. They didn’t know what to do and how to learn to communicate better with Grandma Rosa.
They tried shouting, changing the tone of their voices or leaning closer to her ear when they talked, to no avail. Rosa could hear some sounds clearly, but certain sounds she couldn’t hear well.
It became an everyday struggle for the family, and they missed the comforting family conversations at dinner time.
Sandra finds a website for hearing impaired people that explains how deaf people communicate. They start learning sign language and to “talk” with their fingers. Sandra and Grandma Rosa find realize that with compassion, love, and hard work, they can overcome the obstacles of disability.
