I'm focusing on points that are incorrect across the board no matter where you're speaking English because of course there are regional differences andCountry specific differences, but don't worry about that everything on this top 10 list is completely incorrect, but I'm gonna show you the correct ways of speaking as wellSo where do these? incorrect but very common mistakes come from pop culture creativity with the language often in lyrics or poem sits just easier sometimes to say things the wrong wayI'll share a couple of examples with you of words that are just much easier to pronounce wrong way sometimes being correct is a lot harder. Let's jump into number 1 subject-verb agreement and let me just be clear am guilty of this one because it's super common when native speakers say things for example, likeThere's a lot of errors in spoken English now that's completely incorrect, but it's very common

I should say there are a lot of errors in spoken English because errors is plural. It should take are not is another example, I hear there's a lot of rumors on the internet again rumors is plural and so it should be there are a lot of rumors on the InternetWhy do we constantly make this mistake over and over again? Why do you always hear native speakers saying there's for any plural subject? Well because it's so much easier to pronounce there's instead of there are or there were for the contraction just try saying that there're there were that earth sound in English is difficult to make and it sounds awkwardSo even if you can make that sound easily it just sounds weird a lot of people have adopted the singular there's even when we're talking about a plural subject. How about you do you usually say there's even when you're talking about something plural? Let me know in the number two vague pronoun references, for example,

 I just threw my grammar book out the window and then my English teacher asked me to bring it in well, you can probably guess that I'm talking about my English book because why would I bring the window? into my English class to my teacher, however grammatically, I would be referencing the window because I said that noun last so when I say it it'sReferencing the last noun that I said, which was window. So this is vague. It can be unclear in situations when it's not so obvious for example let's say I'm making a salad put tomatoes and cucumber in my salad and then my friend said to take them out which am I referring to here tomatoes cucumbers or both of them? 

It'sUnclear because this is the way that we use pronouns in English. We need to be careful about making ourselves clear in sentences and situations like this number 3Pronouns like you and I or you and when do we use I or me when you have a subject. It's when you have an object, it's me. So when you say something like between you and me, it's always between you and me or between you and him between you and her just remember that between when you use this phrase you're gonna be using an object and not a subject the subject would be I you and

 I am great friends between you and me you and I are great friends. There's a lot of confusion about thisso we need to understand the difference between a subject and an object is something that receives action, usually when you have a preposition like between you and me me is receiving the actionPlease hand the book to me. Well, I'm the object or me is the object would never say hand the book to I that is completely incorrect and people don't typically make that mistakeBut we often get confused when we're saying shorter phrases like between you and me. We have some examples here hope are making it clearer now number four's versus was and

I'm also guilty of this one because it's so common to say was instead of were nowadays for example not as many people say if I were you they'd say if I was you, however, the correct version in the correct way of speaking is if I were you and also it sounds more professional and educated so it is best to remember if I were going to do something when you're using this tense, you need to use were or I or if you were if he were if she were if it where if we were if they were always were and not was so why do we use was so often? I think the people are just getting a bit lazy and confused about grammar but remember if you're using this conditional tense 

I were you, I would correct my grammar you should use were and not was it's the most correct way of speaking fiveOmitting helping verbs. I know why this happens because we can barely hear the helping verb when we speak quickly, for example, I've been thinking about how to improve my English sounds like there's no helping verb there but it's so slight I've been thinking about almost sounds like I've been thinking about but of courseThat's not correct. I can't just use the past participle been without the helping verb have so make sure that you always have when you're using the present perfect tenseComparatives so earlier 

I use the comparative clearer, which is the correct way of saying this comparative more clear would be clearer but a lot of people say more clear why because again that sound is hard and it sounds awkward leader is hard to say even native speakers will often say more clear. Is it correct? No, the rule is that when you have two or fewer syllables one or two syllables you need to add an e are clear or pretty earth three syllables or more in the adjective say more and then the adjective for example beautiful more beautiful. We don't say beautiful earth that's really awkward-sounding and sometimes little kids make this mistake because they're just following the rules that they hear and it sounds funny but when an adult makes a mistake like this, it's not so funny anymore. So remember the rule

Intensifiers sometimes when you mean to say, for example, you're so beautiful you say mistakenly, you're too beautiful too. Beautiful is actually a negative thing. It'sToo much. It's it'soverSatisfactory in a bad way, we don't want to say too beautiful unless you mean that this person has so much beauty that you're just not able to handle it and you're gonna die or something it's a bad bad thing sometimes I hear my English learners say that food is too good and I'm thinking how could food be too good? There's no such thing as food. That's too good unless maybe it's so good that it makes you want to eat too muchBut in that case we would still say it's so good or it's really good unless you want to say that something is a bad thing that it's negative don't use to if

 I want to say I'm too busy that's okay. Because if I think that busy is a bad thing then I can use it to or it's too cold don't want to go outside that makes sense. But if I like cold weather, I would never say it's too cold let's move on to number eight. It's very common to hear native and non-native English-speakers using the past tense when you should actually use the past participle one of the most common incorrect usages of the past tense instead of the past participle is with the verb to drink because of the correct past participle drunk but that sounds awkward because it sounds like you're talking about being intoxicated even if you're not drinking alcohol, you would say for example, 

I have drunk a lot of water, but that doesn't sound good It's correct but it doesn't sound good because again using the word drunk or just the concept of being drunk is not a good thingso a lot of people just say I have drunk or they completely avoid this tense the present perfect all together. They just use the simple pastI drank a lot of water know that the correct past participle is drunk and a lot of people make mistakes saying, for example, 

I have eight. That's the simple pastnot the past participle or I have broke or I have taken these are incorrect it would be correct to say I have taken and I have eatenThose are the correct past participles number nineAdjectives versus adverbs it is becoming increasingly common to hear English speakers using adjectives when they should be usingAdverbs, for example, I need to go quick instead of quickly need to go quick is common, but it's not correct and I need to go quicklyIt would be the correct usage of the advert another example is I feel bad instead of saying the correct version feel badlyit's not hard to remember because usually, the adverb has a ly at the ends and this is describing the way that the verb is how do you feel I feel badly. How do you need to go? I need to goquickly, why don't people use the correct part of speech may be because you have to add an extra syllable and it makes it alittle bit more of an effort to say 

I don't know but when we speak we always go for thequickest easiest way to get our point across and so it's a little lazyBut if people can understand us, well, a lot of the times native speakers are guilty of speaking incorrectlyBut that doesn't mean that it's good. It doesn't mean you should do that number 10danglingModifiers I have to look this one up knew what it was in practice, but I had a hard time thinking of an example. So here's an exampleI found on the internet I remember meeting the mother of a child who was abducted by the North Koreansright here in the Oval office this is such a confusing sentence for many reasons but the dangling the modifier is right here in the Oval OfficeWe don't know what this isModifying is it modifying meeting the mother? Probably but it sounds like it's actually modifying because of its placement in the sentence at the endAbducted by North Koreans. It sounds as if this abduction happened in the Oval OfficeIt's a very very confusing sentence and this kind of thing happens all the timeIn spoken English and even in written English.

I've seen this kind of issue with journalists who write articles with dangling modifiers and the information gets very confusing be careful having longer sentences is not always a good thing because there's so much more chance mess it up and to use something confusing like a dangling modifier or a vague pronoun my advice is to keep your communication clear and direct and when you're in doubt just keep your communication really simple and what would number 10 be without number?in a bonus point for us here the incorrect usage of articles like the have you ever heard someone say the facebook well, we don't use articles with things like Facebook or

 InstagramOr the Google we simply say Google Facebook or Instagramhowever, if we're using Google Facebook Instagram as adjectives, for example, the Facebook algorithm then we need to use them because we're no longer modifying Facebook. We're modifyingAlgorithm the algorithm. What kind of algorithm the Facebook algorithm? I recently also learned that we no longer use the article the with Ukraine after1991 or 1992The country Ukraine is now Ukraine. So that's another case where you should not use an articleTell me what you think about thesecommon grammar mistakes are you guilty of making any of them or any of them unclear or would you? disagree with any of these or add to any of these let me know and no
