Tips to Avoid 3 Common Usage Errors
Tips to Avoid 3 Common Usage Errors How to choose between: Fewer? or Less? * Who? or Whom? * Bad? or Badly? Fewer? or Less? If you mean “not as many,” choose fewer . If you mean “not as much,” choose less .  Examples: I bought fewer pencils. I ate less pudd...
Find the verb nearest the word in question. If found in front of the verb, who (whoever) is correct. If it follows an action verb choose whom (whomever). If it follows a linking verb, choose who (whoever). Whom (whomever) follows a preposition. Bad? or Badly? Badly describes an action.

Avoid Redundancies and Simply Say What You Mean
Good writers simply say what they mean and avoid excess verbiage. Don’t say: “In my opinion, I think you are wrong.” Instead, just say: “I think you are wrong.” (Obviously this is your opinion.) Don't say: "At this point in time." Instead, just say, "now." ...
The following examples are quite common. You may hear them most often on the news or read them online or in print. But, just because they are commonly used doesn't make them good writing. Avoid redundant expressions to make your writing clear, concise and clutter-free.
