Then I’ve got just the thing for you: a quiz on subject-verb agreement. If you read my last post and/or you’re a grammar natural, you should have no problem acing it. And feel free to share your score–or any other observations–in the comments.
I found this article so entertaining, I thought it would be a shame if I let it slip by without using it as a didactic tool. Here’s how it works: I create typos in the original article, and you catch them. Then you check your answers in the non-typo-ridden version at the bottom of the page.
The text below is rife with typos, and your job is to find ’em. The original, non-typo-laden version is at the bottom with corrected mistakes highlighted in red. No cheating by putting the text through spellcheck!
