However, a researcher’s heart can sink when a❅manuscript is re❅jected due togrammatic❅al errors. This article will analyze some of the common grammatical errors found in manuscripts. When researchers learn to avoid these blunders by revising their work,they increase their odds of manuscriptacceptance. Common Errors that Lead to ManuscriptRejection Inadequate Literature Review: Some researchers are clueless when it comes to finding literature that adds substance to their work. Usually, manuscripts areexpected to have solid coverage. Using outdated literature could result in outrightrejection. Research and Methodological Errors: Every research work has a methodology that the author (researcher) is expected to follow. The complex nature ofresearch analysis could cause some authors to present inadequate data analysis. Inadequate data immediately question the authenticity of anymanuscript. Plagiarism of Material and References: Plagiarism is a common crime in the academic community, and it has serious consequences. This grave errorincludes manuscripts that have word for word text from existing literature. In most cases, plagiarized work gets automatically flagged forrejection. ❅ Common GrammaticalErrors Typos Typos affect the credibilityof a manuscript. Some grammatical errors can even alter the meaning of a statement. Avoid this error by taking the time to edit your workcarefully.  https://www.enago.com/academy/avoid-these-common-grammatical-errors-in-your-paper/

  5. 12/22/2018 Avoid These Common Grammatical Errors in Your Paper - EnagoAcademy Colon Usually, a list of items begins with acolon.  Wrong: I had to purchase the following books from the bookstore, English, Mathematics and Physicstextbooks. Right: I had to purchase the following books from the bookstore: English, Mathematics and Physicstextbooks. However, there is a rule for the use of colons in lists. If the part of the sentence before the colon seems to be incomplete without the other part, then you must avoid usinga colon.  Wrong: Her favourite colors are: red, black andwhite. Right: Her favourite colors are red, black andwhite. Semicolon Semicolons generally separate two sentencesthat are closely related. However, incorrect usage of semicolons should beavoided.  Wrong: The frog is green, it is alsobumpy. Right: The frog is green; it is alsobumpy. Commas Misplacing or omitting commas can alter the meaning of a sentence. Here is anexample.  https://www.enago.com/academy/avoid-these-common-grammatical-errors-in-your-paper/

  6. 12/22/2018 Avoid These Common Grammatical Errors in Your Paper - EnagoAcademy  Wrong: Nonetheless I had to go to thehospital. Right: Nonetheless, I had to go to thehospital. Commas are also used after abbreviations such as i.e., e.g., etc. Most style guides prefer using comma after suchabbreviations. Apostrophes Correct usage of apostrophe can completely change the meaning of the sentence. They are used to denote the possessive form, contractions etc. Plural forms containno apostrophes.  Wrong: It’s allyour’s! Right: It’s allyours! The word “it’s” and “its” spell the same, but have different meaning. The word “it’s” stands for “it is” or “it has”. Although the word “its” stands for a possessive form, it doesnot haveapostrophe.  Wrong: The dog found it’sbone. Right: The dog found itsbone. Periods Before or AfterQuotes Periods always mark the end of a sentence. Missing out on putting the period is common when writers are in a hurry. More important than that is the dilemma whether toplace the period before or after quotes. Different style guides follow either of these rules. In American English, the period (for that matter, any of the punctuation marks) comes before quotes, while in British English, it is theopposite.  https://www.enago.com/academy/avoid-these-common-grammatical-errors-in-your-paper/

Excess of Exclamationmark Too many exclamation marks in the text makes every single exclamation mark lose its emphasis. Instead of emphasizing every point, it only overwhelms the readerand devalues each of thepoint. Hyphens, Em dash and Endash Punctuation marks like hyphens, em dash and en dash look similar but are slightly different in their length and use. Hyphens are used in phrases to describe the noun,such as “the 10-year-old kid”. Em dash is shorter than hyphen but longer than en dash. Their difference in terms of use is asfollows:  Em dash: The people —who did not attend the meeting— could only escape thefire. En dash: This chapter extends from page numbers10–25. Long and Complex SentenceStructures Lengthy sentences that comprise of several ideas without any punctuation could be difficult to understand. Often, there is too much information in one sentence.Shorter sentences can express the same ideas, in a simplermanner.  Wrong: The early morning sun flashed golden rays of sunlight on the ocean, and the wild beasts devoured the green shrubs as singing birds soared in the air what a remarkable sight on a summermorning! Right: The early morning sun flashed golden rays of sunlight on the ocean. Wild beasts devoured green shrubs as birds sang and soared in theair. What a remarkable sight on a summermorning!
