Editing for consistent errors

Consistent errors = making the same errors many times.

sect-05-03

The writer of this sentence seems to be making two errors consistently. The writer is not connecting the determiners (‘several’ and ‘many other‘) with the nouns they modify. Because both ’several‘ and ’many other‘ indicate plurality, the nouns they modify need to be plural as well. A second error is with verb form. The writer probably wants to use the present perfect, but has conjugated the verbs incorrectly.

Correcting this sentence involves:

  • Balancing the determiner(s) with the nouns they modify
  • Correcting the verb form
