New Zulen Misteaks

 

        Imperfect use of the imperfect – done and not did, come and not came, rung and not rang

 

        Over use of words eg unique, awesome

 

        Me, Jane and Jill are going – Jane, Jill and I are going

 

        Using the word’ “Like” in any sentence at all other than to fancy something.

 

        Are yous goin’ – ewes are female sheep and nothing else

 

        Dropping the “g” at the end of a verb

 

        New Years instead of the correct usage, “New Year’s Eve” or “New Year”

 

        Got – the great got – try using, “have” or another verb instead. I got the flu – I suffered from the flu, I have got $5 – I have $5

 

        Rabid use of prepositions: eg continue on with his innings (on is unnecessary) or decreasing down, returning the book back to me

 

        Myself – give this book to Jane or myself (take Jane out of the equation and give the book to me!)

 

        Mispronunciation of words: assembelly, performance, Febrary, libry, pitcha, 

 

        Misuse of the comparative – she is more closer to me,

 

        Ovving and not having – I would of and should be, I would have

 

        Misuse of prepositions: I am bored of (with), different than, to (from), compare to (with),
