How important are grammar rules?


Grammar check is a useful habit for professionals in writing-heavy fields such as sales, law, or research. It is a smart habit for individuals new to the English language. And it is an essential habit for teachers (because let’s face it, teachers are only human and make mistakes too!). Similarly, students should also make a habit of applying a grammar check to their work. However, one does not need to be a professional, teacher, or student to benefit from a grammar checker and, of course, language does not only exist in the written form.

What is Parallel Structure?

Single words, multi-word phrases and clauses can be made parallel by ensuring each item is equal. Examples of parallel structure include multiple gerunds or –ing verbals that function as nouns, past participles, infinitive phrases (to be) and complete clauses that include a subject and predicate. Never mix and match when using parallel structure to create a list or series. Here is an example of parallel structure paired with a non-parallel construction.
